Al Gore's film warns of the impact of humans on climate change
An Inconvenient Truth looks at the scientific evidence on the causes and likely impacts of global warming.
Plans to show it in Scottish schools were announced ahead of an event in Glasgow attended by Mr Gore and former UN chief weapons inspector Hans Blix.
A package of education materials will be developed around the film.
Environment Minister Ross Finnie said: "Scotland takes climate change seriously.
"Since meeting Al Gore in September and watching An Inconvenient Truth at its first screening I have been considering ways in which the main messages about climate change could be embedded into future learning education in Scotland."
The film is being shown with the aid of Scottish Power who will make DVD copies available.
Mr Gore, the Democratic nominee in the 2000 presidential election, was defeated by George W Bush.
Since the defeat he has mounted an environmental crusade, arguing that global warming is no longer a political issue but a moral challenge.
The What Our Future Holds conference in Glasgow was described as a business networking lunch, followed by a discussion session.
