Motion text

That this House congratulates the pupils of Carlibar Primary School in Barrhead who are playing their part in tackling climate change by planting hundreds of trees; notes that the school’s primary seven group planted saplings of native species, including oak and aspen, at Barrhead’s Carlibar Park as part of the Wee Wood project being run in partnership by the Scottish Contemporary Art Network and East Renfrewshire Council; further notes that the Carlibar Park Wee Wood will be one of 26 woodlands established across East Renfrewshire as part of a legacy project linked to the COP26 climate change conference held in Glasgow last year; welcomes the fact that artist and Scottish Contemporary Art Network member, Robyn Woolston, who worked with the pupils on the tree planting will work with Carlibar Primary on further art activities to help reduce carbon impact, support ecological diversity and introduce young people to the role of art in unlocking climate action.
