Loving Earth exhibition at Scottish Maritime Museum continues
The Loving Earth project’s exhibition at the Scottish Maritime Museum in Dumbarton has been extended until 23rd January.
This lovely little exhibition exhibition was listed as one of the best cultural events in Scotland for COP26. The museum is easy to get to on the train and the small permanent collection at the Denny Tank is fascinating too – showing how model ships from the Cutty Sark to submarines were made and tested. Finish your visit with a stroll along the Clyde or Leven for a varied day out for people of all ages.

The exhibition at the lovely Gorbals Church opening 30 October till 14 November Fridays till Mondays is also very lovely. We will be holding textile workshop each weekend at one of these venues during COP 26 – see our events page for details . There is good parking at both venues and the Gorbals church is wheelchair friendly.
Other displays around Glasgow are equally good, though a little smaller. If you’re in town, there may be one near you!

New Loving Earth Postcards

As well as a creative writing workshop and some sewing workshops, we have created a postcard for them to use .
Further postcards are now available on request for use in by groups and events, to help people engage with the challenges and share what they are doing to take action on climate change.

Journey to COP 26 events on 10th April
Loving Earth Project will be offering two events on 10th April, as part of the Journey to COP 26 invitation to help us all prepare for the critical UN climate talks in Glasgow in November 2021. All are welcome to our morning’s workshop Celebrating where we love, or a more leisurely day Exploring Sacred Spaces – details are on our Events page
More information about COP 26 and other events on this date are available here.
Sacred People , Sacred Earth: Journey to COP 26: celebrating where we love
Celebrate a place you love , as part of a Quaker-led initiative inviting everyone to celebrate a place that is precious to them. It could be where you live now, in a distant land, a place of natural beauty, a building, or another place that is sacred to you . Life is threatened everywhere by the growing climate crisis, and radical changes are needed to avoid the worst effects.
We will help you prepare to make a textile panel expression your love for this place, and/or what you can do to help care for its future. Your panel can then be sent to join our travelling exhibition. We hope that panels celebrating beloved places all over the world will be shown in Glasgow at the time of for COP26 and will tour widely thereafter.
You can join our journey to COP26 events on 10 April or get started today using resources on our website. You might like to set aside some time on 11 March as part of the Global Day of Action when people from faith groups around the world will be taking a variety of actions for climate justice.
