Teach the Future Scotland

Our Scottish campaign has 4 asks:

1. A government-commissioned review into how the whole of the Scottish formal education system is preparing students for the climate emergency and ecological crisis.

2. Inclusion of the climate emergency and ecological crisis in teacher training and a new professional teaching qualification.

3. Increased priority for sustainability in school inspections and publicly influencing educational rankings.

4. A Scottish Climate and Biodiversity Emergency Education Act.

We believe these asks will bring about the necessary change to our education system.

Our Scottish campaign is run by two organisations, Scottish Youth Climate Strike and National Union of Students Scotland.

Launch day


During the months of lockdown we worked hard to get everything ready for the launch of our Scottish campaign. On the 6th of July 2020 we officially went live. As well as this, we wrote to John Swinney, Scotland’s education minister, asking for a green recovery for education. We also wrote to Nicola Sturgeon about our campaign and our 4 asks. In the future we look forward to having an in-person meeting with members of the Scottish parliament, but for the meanwhile we are launching this amazing campaign online.
