Children of the revolution: A special edition examining how climate action now can save our future.

The issue of climate change and environmental emergency has been creeping up the political and social agenda for some time. The actions of Swedish schoolgirl, Greta Thunberg, and her peers, has galvanised a whole generation to campaign for change and hold elected officials to account. They, and thousands around the world, have given a clear message: the status quo will no longer be accepted.

This special ‘green’ edition looks at what action could, should and is being taken now to save the future of our planet

  • We speak with Holly and Coll, two young environmental activists demanding change and leading from the front
  • Roseanna Cunningham tells us about government progress and priorities
  • Experts share their thoughts on the way forward in our new ‘Big Question’ feature
  • Find out more about the Climate Ready Classrooms project
  • Hear recommendations from young people named as Scottish Climate Champions

We hope this issue will inspire you to consider what we can do as individuals, as families and as communities to help reduce the impacts of modern living on our planet, but that it also gives hope that all is not lost, if we act now.

This edition is also the first to be offered on our new PageSuite digital publishing platform. It will also be freely accessible, at no cost, as part of our offering to the sector at this time.
