When and where? Meet the ECSA Officer team outside Tron Kirk on the Royal Mile at 10:30 to walk down to the Parliament Building together to join the rest of the climate strikers at 11:00.
This Global Climate Strike is being organised across Scotland and the rest of the UK by Fridays for Future. If you would like to attend, the College have confirmed that no student will be marked as absent, or have their student funding affected, if they attend the climate strike.
In 2019, ver 10,000 students and supportive adults took to the Meadows and down the Royal Mile to demand that the government take climate change seriously. With COP26 (the United Nations climate change conference) coming to Glasgow in November, this is your chance to be heard again!
