Climate Change Message in a Bottle is a participatory multi-media art project which aims to bring the voices of young islanders from Scotland and around the world to COP26. The project was founded by Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance and Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre, and is kindly funded by the Scottish Government. After educational workshops on climate science, clean energy and COP26, participating schoolchildren put together messages to delegates and representatives at COP26 in Glasgow about the climate crisis and their islands. Watch the video, created by UistFilm, to see what young islanders have to say to world leaders!
