Ring Out for Climate Justice

9 March @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

Free

Ring Out for Climate Justice is a youth-led climate justice project delivered in collaboration with A+E (Art and Ecology programme) at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh.

This is a monthly bellringing event at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh, to raise awareness of the climate and ecological crisis – led by young people aged 11-16. It is supported by Jonathan Baxter, artist in residence at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral. It happens on the second Saturday of the month, March-May, from 11.30am-2pm (for the wider engagement programme) and 12-12.20pm (for the bellringing specifically).  It is likely to continue thereafter, but the day might change.

 Responding to the desire of young people to channel their deep concern about the climate and ecological crisis, Ring Out for Climate Justice was initiated by Emily Slack (age 11) in conversation with Jonathan Baxter (artist in residence at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral) and Emily’s mum, Alison Slack.

Ring Out for Climate Justice has three aims:

To support young people in their concern to address the climate and ecological crisis.

To communicate that concern across Edinburgh and further afield (i.e. wherever there are church bells there can be a Ring Out initiative).

To provide positive opportunities for young people to gather, self-organise and develop skills that support their mental and physical wellbeing.
