A youth climate hustings in advance of the Scottish Parliament elections in May 2021.
The Climate Hot Seat has been organised by young people aged 13-32 representing seven youth organisations in Scotland (YouthLink Scotland, Children in Scotland, Scottish Youth Parliament, Young Friends of the Earth, 2050 Climate Group, Fridays for Future Scotland, and Teach the Future). The event is specifically for young people to hold Scotland’s party leaders accountable for their climate action and to give other young people valuable information in advance of casting their vote.
The Climate Hot Seat event will take place on Friday 9th April via video conferencing. It is open to young people aged 11 – 25. Young people have the opportunity to submit their climate and environment questions to party leaders in advance (deadline 26th March) and we are hosting a Warm-Up event where young people can talk to experts on five key environmental topics. This is taking place on Friday 12th March.
