COP26 – Fancy “flagging up” your dreams for the future – this Saturday (6th November) on Nairn Beach for the Global Day of Action?

Folk that were involved in the Beach of Dreams flag installation for the Nairn Arts and Book Festival are getting the flags out again this Saturday to spell out the words COP26 on the Central Beach. They are then asking people to write out their dreams in the sand.

Here at the Gurn we would urge our regular readers to support this initiative – it is our chance to register our concern for the threat to the planet’s future that is climate change. We have to mobilise and demand change from leaders and this Saturday we have a chance to do something.

The organisers are looking for people to carry flags and march down from the square opposite the Classroom restaurant at 12 midday am this Saturday 6th November. You can find out more on this thread on the popular Nairn our Town Facebook page.

Hopefully there will be a good turnout. Nairn Beach is no stranger to enviromental protests. Perhaps some of you will remember the S2S protest back in December 2016 (images here). – we got results locally with that one. Let’s do what we can folks.
