About this event

The Health and Social Care Academy (an ALLIANCE programme) and Scottish Care are co-hosting a series of roundtable events which will foster dialogue and explore the crucial role that social care must play in the context of climate change – in addressing, adapting to and taking action to mitigate the impacts.

Scottish Government has pledged to be a net-zero nation by 2045 and Industry and investments are going green. There is a need for the social care sector to be involved in supporting sustainability effort as it is both affected by and contributes to climate change. At present, there is little policy and action being taken to deliver social care in a changing climate. Given the mixed economy of care provision in Scotland, the impact of climate change will need to be acted upon by a range of different bodies, including local authorities, health and social care partnerships and care providers.

Events will look at the current context, the barriers to action and will help identify solutions that can be taken forward by the sector as a call to action. It is our hope that these roundtables start to foster innovation, inspire action in the sector and ensure that social care is recognised as an equal partner in tackling climate change.

The series will inform a set of principles and a call to action to inform stakeholders and groups on the areas for constructive and collaborative improvement in climate change and social care, which will be shared prior to COP26 on November 1, 2021.

Final details for each event, including confirmed speakers, will be announced over the coming weeks and Zoom links will be sent to attendees.
