As COP26 approaches, Our World, Our Impact aims to provide a platform for people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved in the climate conversation.

With Support from the Scottish Government, GSC will be running a series of activities to involve schools and communities as we prepare for the arrival of COP26:

  • Curious About: Our Planet – GSC will build on its unique digital science festival site, providing schools throughout Scotland free access to climate resources and inspiring live sessions with researchers. 
  • National Climate Campaign – Working with its colleagues in the Scottish science centre network, it will share its expertise and resources, creating a National Campaign that reaches underserved audiences throughout Scotland, upskilling the sector making its more dynamic and resilient.
