Donald was chosen as one of three Scots poets to give a reading at the COP 26 climate change summit in Glasgow.
He appeared in the Green Zone along with fellow Scots poets, Roseanne Watt and Pàdraig MacAoidh, at “Weathering the Storm: Scottish Poets Discuss Climate Change Resilience and Adaptation.”
Interestingly, Donald shared the stage at the sold-out event with two of his former school pupils from his days teaching English.
You can see the full COP 26 presentation on Youtube and read more about the background to the poetry event here -
Donald also wrote an advance piece for the Press and Journal newspaper (https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/opinion/3544722/environment-attitudes-changes-killing-whales-donald-murray-opinion)
