The Skating Minister by Henry Raeburn
This modern re-imagining of Henry Raeburn’s ‘The Reverend Robert Walker Skating on Duddingston Loch’ features two young Scottish climate strikers skateboarding past the Scottish Parliament building.
Young climate activists
‘Get Your Skates On’ explores the relationship between individuals and governments, and the urgent need to work together in order to achieve climate justice for all.
Signing the Protest Art
Faith leaders, politicians and decision makers have signed the reverse of the large painting as a signal of their commitment to take urgent action on climate justice.
Pictured here is Bishop Mark Strange signing the protest art.
We call on the Scottish Government to:
- Get your skates on with a credible plan to catch up on annual climate targets
- Put the brakes on the proposed oil field at Cambo
- Encourage others to get their skates on by sharing our positive contributions to climate justice.
Attendees at a COP26 service in Glasgow Cathedral were invited to sign the back of the portrait as a pledge of their commitment to those on the frontline of the climate crisis.
We invite you to add your signature too.
