Young climate activists from across Scotland have joined together to host a youth climate husting in advance of the Scottish Parliament elections in May 2021.

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. Young people can also learn about five key environmental areas with experts at the Climate Hot Seat - The Warm-Up event.

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 can submit their climate and environmental questions.  All questions submitted will be reviewed by the organising group of young people before the event and young people whose questions are chosen to be asked at the event will be contacted in advance.  If young people are under 16, they will need parental/carer permission to submit a question.

The deadline for submitting questions is 9am on Friday 26th March 2021.

The Warm-Up event will be held on Friday 12th of March 2021.
