Glasgow schoolgirl’s climate action design chosen for First Minister’s Christmas card ScotGov

Artwork by a Glasgow primary school pupil has been unveiled as the First Minister’s 2022 Christmas card.

Children at Sunnyside Primary School in Craigend were tasked with creating a festive design inspired by the school’s campaign for climate action.

The winning design was created by P5 pupil Evita Ye, aged nine, and features a colourful snow globe with the words “The future is in our hands”.

“I’d like to congratulate Evita and all the pupils at Sunnyside for their striking and creative designs,” First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said.

“Climate change is already having a massive impact around the world and if we don’t take the right action, things will only get worse.

“I’ve been hugely impressed to hear about the actions pupils at Sunnyside have been taking, and I want to thank each and every one of them for getting involved – with such enthusiasm – in the most important issue facing our world.

“The school was a natural choice to design my card and I’m pleased to be able to help spread their calls for unified action on climate change.”

Sunnyside has created and run many climate campaigns and recently started the Running Out of Time relay.

Sturgeon welcomed the baton to COP27 in Egypt, after it made its way through 18 countries on a 4,800 mile journey.
