UN international climate talks

UN climate talks in Paris 2015

The UN climate conference takes place in Paris, from 30th November to 11th December 2015.  At the conference, a new global agreement on climate change is expected to be agreed.  Find out more about why the Paris climate talks matter in our briefing (pdf format).

SCCS will be represented at the Paris climate talks as observers, and will blog each day, starting Saturday 28th November, in The National newspaper.  Links to these blogs will also be made available via this web page.

To keep up with the latest news from the global climate negotiations, follow us on Twitter @sccscot.

Take action ahead of the Paris talks by taking part in a global weekend of action: Scotland's Climate March takes place in Edinburgh on Saturday 28th November.  We hope to see you there!

Taking the Scottish climate example to other countries
SCCS has done a great deal of work to encourage other developed countries to commit to ambitious climate change legislation as Scotland has done with its world-leading Scottish Climate Change Act.

Our new short film, Scotland's Climate Action Story, aims to inform decision makers in other countries to try to inspire similarly ambitious climate commitments elsewhere.  View the film via the link below and link to our web page about the short film to access the film in other languages and related briefings.

In previous years, we have done other work to show how Scottish civil society came together to push for our ambitious climate legislation.  Find out more about this in this short video about the example set by the Scottish Climate Change Act and how Stop Climate Chaos Scotland worked together to influence it: SCCS Climate Act film.
