Celebrating one year of the Climate Beacons

19 July 2022

Climate Beacons was launched in June 2021 and, one year on, we are taking the opportunity to look back at their successes and achievements.

About the Climate Beacons

Climate Beacons is a Scotland-wide collaborative project between climate change or environmental organisations and arts, heritage or cultural organisations to stimulate long-term public engagement in the lead-up to and following COP26.

Seven hubs known as ‘Climate Beacons’ can be found in these regions:

Bringing together shared resources and knowledge from cultural and climate organisations, the Climate Beacons provide a welcoming physical and virtual space for the public, artists and cultural sector professionals, environmental NGOs, scientists and policymakers to engage with environmental themes and climate action specific to each local area.

The project is led by Creative Carbon Scotland, connecting the seven Beacons and offering support throughout, alongside six co-ordinating partners, Architecture & Design Scotland, Creative Scotland, Edinburgh Climate Change Institute, Museums Galleries Scotland, Scottish Library and Information Council, and Sustainable Scotland Network.
