A number of events are being organised in schools, colleges and workplaces across the country to encourage people to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Ministers will also take part, supporting the message that everyone - government, business, communities and individuals – must work together to help Scotland become a net-zero society by 2045.

And the Edinburgh Castle official twitter page has posted a picture of the castle glowing green along with the statement: "Look out for the castle dazzling in green this evening for the start of Climate Week. #EdinburghCastle #ScotClimateWeek."
