by Teach the Future & Fridays For Future Scotland 

Friday 19 March         5.00 - 6.30

An online panel discussion on the climate and ecological emergency between Highlands & Islands high school students, MPs and MSPs.

About this Event

96% of 18-24 year olds in Scotland are concerned about the escalating climate crisis according to the 2020 Ipsos MORI survey.  How can we give voice to those concerns?

‘The Future Speaks’ will provide an open forum for young people, the group most harmed by climate and ecological dangers, to constructively engage with elected representatives on this most important issue. 

In this event leading up to COP26 and the Holyrood elections, local students will ask sitting Highlands & Islands MPs and candidate MSPs questions relating to climate change obligations, education, and action. The panel will include representatives from all major Scottish parties including Ariane Burgess MSP candidate (Scottish Greens), Maree Todd MSP (Scottish National Party), Beatrice Wishart MSP (Scottish Liberal Democrats), and more to be announced!

This event is organised by Teach the Future and Fridays For Future Scotland with support from Learning for Sustainability, The Royal Society of Edinburgh, The Scottish Mathematical Council, Geobus, The Institute of Physics, and the Institute of Engineering and Technology.
