For the Love of

Members of Friends of the Earth Tayside and other green groups are holding the event as part of the national “For the Love of” campaign organised by Stop Climate Chaos Scotland.  This is a coalition of many organisations, including Oxfam, the RSPB, Greenpeace and Christian Aid.

The news coverage on climate change tends to be at a high level, detached from people’s lives, with all the talk about CO2 parts per million and percentage emission reductions by 2050.  There’s less attention to how it will affect the lives of ordinary people.  The event will encourage passers-by to discuss how things that matter to them are affected.

They will be encouraged to send a message urging the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, to push for an ambitious global deal at the crucial Paris Climate Change Conference in December this year.
