Craftivism for COP26

We have been busy knitting and sewing to make panels for the Stitches for Survival project at COP26.

We are contributing our crafted panels towards the 1.5 miles of climate messages, representing the 1.5 degree target in the Paris Agreement. The panels will be joined together making a huge scarf which will be displayed at COP26. Its aim is to urge world leaders to take bold and binding action to stop the devastating climate havoc and ecological breakdown across the world.


After COP26 the scarf will be repurposed into blankets for refugees and other communities who need them. Some of the more creative sections will be kept for an exhibition, and be used for ongoing campaigning.

Soroptimist clubs all over Scotland are taking part in this important project and sending out a clear and strong message that we must protect our planet NOW.
