Fife Climate Festival will be running more than 50 events across the Kingdom over nine days.

Fife Climate Hub invited community groups to take part in a celebration of the climate action taking place across Fife. The end result is 54 climate and nature-related events held over nine days, with a number of events being held in and around Dunfermline.

Craig Leitch, Fife Climate Hub manager, said: “We have been bowled over by the response to our call for communities to join in with our first-ever Fife Climate Festival. This shows what a busy climate action network we have in Fife. ]

"Amidst the urgency of the climate and biodiversity crises, Fife Climate Festival is a beacon of hope. 

“With over 50 climate events lined up, the festival demonstrates the strength of our community's commitment to action.”

Lisa Mulube, a Yoga Therapist with The Yoga Social, will be holding a class in the Glen.

She commented: “We all need to play our part in supporting this work and ensuring a healthy world for the future. I feel that part of the climate struggle is society's general disconnection to nature and sense that we are separate.

“Encouraging connection to nature through breathwork and mindfulness can be so powerful in creating a deeper physiological connection to the earth and enable people to feel less alone and more likely to take action to save that which we are essentially deeply connected to."

The festival will take place from February 24 to March 3. Find out more at the festival website.
