University of Glasgow graduates produce documentary film to take action on climate change in Scotland

In a new documentary film called ‘Climate Change and Scotland’s Future’, University of Glasgow graduates Jenni O’Neill and Cameron Mackay put their degrees to use to look at how one of the biggest issues facing the country they grew up in could be tackled.

Through investigating what people can do to mitigate and prepare for the impacts of climate change in Scotland over coming decades, their journey takes them from Glasgow to South Uist and from National Nature Reserves to coastal towns.

From student expedition organiser and filmmaker, Cameron Mackay, this film aims to promote awareness of climate change adaptation and how we can come together nationally to set up a sustainable future. Cameron says, “I really hope, through showcasing our physical and social vulnerability to climate change and suggesting ways forward, we can start conversations between different people and organisations in Scotland to inspire action”.

The film will be released on the 21st September, to coincide with the Scottish Government’s Climate Week campaign, at a free screening event at the University of Strathclyde. Organised in partnership with Sustainable Strathclyde and with support from Vital Energi, the screening will take place in the Graham Hills Building, 50 Richmond Street, at 6pm and will feature a panel discussion with some of Scotland’s top climate change experts. Everyone from school pupils to university lecturers and all members of the public are welcome to attend! Tickets can be obtained on a first come first served basis from Sustainable Strathclyde. Thereafter the film will be available for free at http://www.explorersstories.org with an accompanying resource pack as well as on selected websites across Scotland.
