The National Mining Museum Scotland, in partnership with the British Geological Survey, has been selected as the Midlothian Climate Beacon for COP26.

The Climate Beacon project, supported and led by Creative Carbon Scotland, has created seven Climate Beacon’s across Scotland that combine cultural, heritage or arts organisations and climate or environmental organisations to stimulate long-term public engagement prior to and following COP26, hosted by Glasgow from 1-12 November 2021.

The Midlothian Climate Beacon project will launch with the British Geological Survey’s art and science exhibition, which will focus on the transition away from fossil fuels as a source of energy and the role of water in decarbonisation.

The Climate Beacon’s will launch across Scotland in 2021 with varied programmes of activities lasting until July 2022. Alongside the main exhibition, there will be other events including art workshops, a variety of talks and debates on subjects surrounding climate change, student residency, and STEAM-focused school’s programme.
