Join Anna Beswick from sustainability charity Sniffer, to help us understand what climate
Join Anna Beswick from sustainability charity Sniffer, to help us understand what climate change will mean in your area and across Scotland, and identify the best way to plan for the impact – taking the opportunities and preparing for the risks. Anna leads delivery of the Scottish Government’s Adaptation Scotland programme and specialises in climate resilience and adaptation. Adaptation Scotland provides advice and support to help us all be prepared and resilient to the effects of climate change.
Our climate is already changing. While efforts to reduce the rate and scale of climate change continue, we must also adapt to new conditions we are facing – and need to work together to ensure Scotland becomes truly climate ready. The Adaptation Scotland programme helps communities, businesses and the public sector take joint action to prepare for and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
The programme supports a wide range of initiatives from city-wide adaptation planning to producing teaching resources helping children learn about climate change impacts where they live, encouraging collaboration wherever possible. You can read more in a case study on designing the Climate Ready Places awareness raising tool.
Scotland’s Climate Week from 26th September to 2nd October 2022, raises awareness of how people, businesses and organisations can adapt to a low carbon lifestyle. It celebrates and showcases climate action, with support across all our communities, an opportunity to respond to the climate crisis and encourage further action to help Scotland achieve Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.
This week, Eco-Congregation Scotland asks everyone to please get involved by having conversations on climate change with colleagues, family and friends – and within all our communities.
Please join us online this week to hear from key organisations able to support climate action through your local church, in your community and regional climate hubs across Scotland.
Alongside the Season of Creation and Scotland’s Climate Week, we continue our September focus on the Climate Fringe Festival, promoting local climate action, sharing community events and connecting around climate change through the Climate Fringe website built by Stop Climate Chaos Scotland.
