Festival of Politics 2021

In partnership with Scotland’s Futures Forum

The Festival of Politics 2021 will take place online from 20 to 24 October.

All events will be free to attend. More updates on the programme and how to book tickets will be added here towards the end of September.

Addressing the climate emergency

The next United Nations Climate Change Conference, known as COP26, is in Glasgow this November. With world leaders and experts in attendance, the climate emergency is at the top of the agenda.

The Festival of Politics aims to inform and inspire people with the knowledge to make a difference on climate change issues, by engaging with leading experts and thinkers. It will also cover other relevant themes, like Black History Month, mental health, and Scotland's recovery from Covid-19.

More details to follow. In the meantime, the details of our first event of 2021 can be found below.
