Event Details

Join environmental charity, Sniffer, for our new Becoming Climate Resilient training, endorsed by the Edinburgh Climate Change Institute, to explore climate adaptation, climate risk, and opportunities to build resilience and a fairer, flourishing future.

As climate change brings about more frequent and severe disruption across the systems we all rely upon, building resilience is an increasingly urgent priority for businesses, government and communities. Yet, adapting to climate change remains a new challenge for many.

Even if we rapidly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, we are still locked into significant climate impacts. That’s why it is important to not only focus on cutting emissions, but also to take actions to adapt to a changing climate.

What you will learn

Learning outcomes:

  1. Understand responses to climate change, and what is meant by adaptation and mitigation
  2. Explore climate trends and projections for Scotland and identify physical climate risks
  3. Understand drivers for adaptation action
  4. Identify opportunities for co-benefits of climate adaptation
  5. Explore case studies of resilience and adaptation in action

How will the course be run?

This one day short course will be delivered online (MS Teams) and will consist of presentations, interactive workshops, and group discussion. This format will allow you to engage with other participants, and opportunities to apply learning to your organisation’s context. You will be sent a confirmation and joining link one week prior to the training date (delivery date subject to sufficient registration numbers).

Who is this suitable for?

This course is designed for businesses and organisations. Training is aimed at those with some understanding of climate change, however no specific knowledge of climate resilience and adaptation is required. Please note that the content of this course is most relevant to a Scottish context, however participants based outside of Scotland are welcome to participate.
