Humanist Society Scotland members hold banners at COP26

Environment and Climate Change

Humanists are passionate about protecting the environment for future generations and championing the use of science to inform policy of climate change. We believe that everyone has a responsibility to look after our home, and work with numerous partners in Scotland and across the globe to promote and achieve this.

Humanist Society Scotland is a member of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland. This is a coalition of over 60 civic organisation who work together to ensure Scotland plays its fair part in tackling climate change and that the commitments set out in the Scottish Climate Change Act are achieved.
