Primus calls on new MSPs to look to COP26

May 10, 2021

With our new MSPs preparing to be sworn in at Holyrood this week following the Scottish Parliament election, the Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church has called on our politicians – and the electorate – to move forward together, and not to forget the importance of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow later this year.

“The result of the election for the Scottish Parliament will have seen some rejoicing and others struggling to accept it,” said The Most Rev Mark Strange, Bishop of Moray, Ross & Caithness.

“We must now move forward as we all seek to do the best for the people and the land we live on.

“There are many different suggestions about that best way forward as we seek recovery after the pandemic but please remember that in November, Glasgow will hold the COP26 meeting, a moment when united voices need to be heard as we seek to find the ways to heal the very planet we live on.”
