A collaborative event for European Day for Sustainable Communities hosted by SCCAN – Scottish Communities Climate Action Network with input from EVOC, Our Future Edinburgh, Edinburgh Climate Coalition and Edinburgh Climate Festival.

Addressing the issues of Climate Justice and Nature Regeneration calls for innovation and collective action. Around the world, young people are leading climate action and social justice movements in their communities.

This year, coinciding with the European Year of Youth, the 6th European Day of Sustainable Communities, #EDSC2022, provides a platform to celebrate and support the young leaders and citizens that are shaping our present and future communities across Europe.
