Scotland’s Climate Week
25 September - 1 October 2023
Scotland's Climate Week is an annual event that encourages individuals, communities and businesses to come together to show support for tackling the climate emergency. It's also a great opportunity to share success stories which can inspire others to take action.
This year is about us all taking action in the areas that have the most impact.
For example, emissions from cars and home heating are the biggest contributors to climate change in Scotland from individuals. Actions like using your car less, improving your heating and buying less or second-hand are not only good for the planet, but can feel good for you as well – helping you to save money and live a healthier and happier life.
ACTION FEELS GOOD
Making changes to the way we travel and heat our homes will make the biggest difference to climate change and benefit you too. For example, clear your head by leaving the car and walking to work. Improve your heating and stay toasty in winter. Buy less or reduce the number of single-use items that you buy to save money for the things that matter most in life.
Find out how to take action in these key areas and share your successes using #ScotClimateWeek.
