St John’s Cathedral invited people to think, chat and be inspired in response to COP26 and beyond.
Community groups got together to put on a series of displays at stations throughout the Cathedral in George Street last week to get people talking about their disappointments and hopes from COP26 as well as thinking about what action they could take to make positive changes.
Hope Kitchen, the GRAB Trust, Keep Oban Beautiful and Oban Youth Cafe were just some of the groups taking part.
It was the idea of cathedral curate the Reverend Becki Cansdale who said: ‘We wanted to engage people and give them a space to come together to talk and share their feeling and ideas after COP26 and importantly to spark off ideas on how we can all take action to make positive changes. COP26 might be over but it doesn’t stop there. We need to get together and take action to make positive changes happen in our communities. Hopefully our event will help.’
‘It was great to get so many groups helping us with the displays and to see so many people come and join us,’ added the Rev Cansdale.
Today, November 25, is your last chance to go and view the displays.
