All Visitors Welcome

Marking Glasgow’s hosting of the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference – COP26 – in November 2021, The Dear Green Bothy is a programme of free public events and activities demonstrating the vital role played by the arts and humanities in understanding and addressing climate emergency.  

Led by the University of Glasgow’s College of Arts, The Dear Green Bothy is an open space where researchers, artists and communities can gather to respond creatively and critically to the challenges of the ecological crisis. We welcome you to our Bothy, invite you to take part in our events – and to get in touch if you have ideas for future hospitable collaborations. 

To keep up to speed with the programme make sure to subscribe to the What’s On at the College of Arts monthly newsletter and follow @UofGArts and #TheDearGreenBothy on your social channels.
