This sleek creation lovingly crafted in ice will be the star attraction at the Watersports Centre at Strathclyde Park on Saturday – and will hammer home an environmental wake-up call in the process.

Artist Kate Plumb’s polar bear aims to raise awareness about climate change during the COP26 conference in Glasgow.

Kate will be on hand at the Watersports Centre to meet the public and discuss the impact of climate change on the environment and on endangered Artic animals. She will be photographing and filming the 70 centimetre sculpture as it melts – to underline the risks involved in not taking care of the planet. The sculpture will be on display from 11am to 4.30pm.
