Festival of Politics 2021

In partnership with Scotland’s Futures Forum

Bringing together academics, writers, policymakers, business people and politicians, join us at the Festival of Politics to debate what action needs to happen to tackle the climate emergency.  

Taking place over five days, our free online panel sessions allow you to have your say and debate if the world has gone past its tipping point or if it can be saved through science, technology and innovative action. Themed around the United Nations’ Sustainable Goals, we will also explore the impact of climate on other issues such as poverty and inequality.

Book your free tickets now and find out more about Scotland’s place in tackling the world’s climate crisis as it prepares to host global leaders for the COP26 conference.
