AN EXHIBITION focussing on climate change is opening in Birnam this weekend.

'Whole earth?' will officially open at Birnam Arts this Sunday, August 6, and looks at sustainability and how best to protect the world through a series of questions covering topics like resources, population, poverty, human rights and the environment.

The event will start at 2pm, the opening will be followed by a talk from the exhibition's photographer Mark Edwards at 5pm.

The display originally launched in 2015 and has been at universities and schools around the UK and beyond in France, Sweden and India.

Bringing it to the local area are Birnam Arts, local community group Dunkeld and Birnam Climate Café and Perth and Kinross Council.

The exhibition will be open daily between 10am and 5pm until August 31 with free entry. Thereafter it will be on display at Perth College UHI during Climate Week, between September 18 and 22.

The climate café's Jess Pepper said: “It is such an exciting opportunity to be able to see this incredible, globally acclaimed exhibition right here in Birnam Arts.

“It is brilliant timing too, just as Scotland begins another conversation about what will be in a new Scottish Climate Change Bill and the Scottish Parliament gets a fresh opportunity to show international leadership on climate action.

“We hope everyone will be inspired by the images, as well as all the amazing local action going on here and in communities across Perthshire and Scotland."

The council's environment, enterprise and infrastructure convener, Councillor Colin Stewart, added: "As part of our commitment to Scotland's Climate Change Declaration, we want to raise awareness of the impact of climate change and the issues around it.

“Bringing a major exhibition like 'Whole Earth?' to Perth and Kinross provides an exciting opportunity to highlight the subject.

“I am very pleased that we have been able to work with Birnam Arts and Birnam Climate Café to achieve this and I hope it will encourage and engage people in Perth and Kinross as it has already done elsewhere in the UK and further afield."
