FREE PICTURE: Ostrero Making Circles COP26 Project, Scotland, Mon 04/10/2021: Scotland’s Schoolchildren Show COP26 Leaders How to Build a Sustainable World. And call for real change at Glasgow conference. They have also shown that one way ahead is through cutting waste by transforming used and unwanted items into useful or attractive things like bags or brooches. Their words and creations feature in a new online display created by Edinburgh-based social impact business Ostrero and hosted by National Museums Scotland (NMS) called “Designing for the Climate: A Circular Economy”. During the “Making Circles” project children took part in a variety of activities, including learning from professional artists and designers about how to use their creative skills to rid the world of waste. Classes from Duddingston Primary School, in Edinburgh, and Moffat Academy in Dumfries and Galloway, also wrote messages to leaders attending COP26, which takes place in Glasgow in November.
