That this House congratulates The Leven Programme, ONFife and Levenmouth Academy, alongside other local organisations, in becoming Fife’s Climate Beacon and bringing arts and science together to raise public engagement on Climate Change; recognises the role of the Scottish Government’s Climate Change and Culture Divisions, Creative Scotland and Museum Galleries Scotland in providing funding and expertise for the project which will see these organisations coming together to inspire positive action on climate change across Fife and the whole of Scotland in the run up to and beyond the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26); commends the important role this will play in sharing stories of the proud industrial heritage of Fife and to show the world how Scotland and our communities can transform to a resilient low carbon community for the future; highlights the pioneering aspect of the project to ensure that negotiations from COP26 will be linked back to our communities and felt not only in Glasgow but across the whole country; thanks all of the individuals involved with this programme; and encourages the public to get involved and consider how they too can make a positive impact on climate change.
