Event Details

Join us, in real life or online via Zoom, as we host a Climate
Café with 3 expert speakers and dive into the topic of Green Lairds.

Carbon Storage or Carbon Sequestration are terms that are being used very often by environmentalists and big tech as a way to mitigate climate change.

Upland farmland is presently being bought at soaring prices by investors intent on planting trees and restoring peatlands for carbon offsetting. With a rich natural capital, Scotland is at the heart of the debate. How do we maximise carbon storage in a way that is socially just and environmentally robust? 

In our upcoming climate cafe, Green Lairds – Land Acquisition for Carbon, our team of speakers will discuss the aims of government and environmental bodies and whether these investments will deliver environmental regeneration and improved amenity for the local community. Come and join us on Zoom or at Mental Health Aberdeen on Dee Street on Tuesday 6th September at 7 pm. Book your ticket here!

Various recommendations will be proposed that may lead to community involvement and a greater strategic approach.
