6.30pm – 8.30pm Thursday 3 March at Augustine United Ch, 41 George IV Br EH1 1EL + Online.

Networking: How YOU can get involved!
Book: Share

The Scottish Government is supporting SCCAN to invest in ten regional community climate action networks which will then be able to bid to host one of the Scottish Government funded Regional Community Climate Action Hubs. Louisa Harvey will outline the Government’s plans.
Late in 2021 the City of Edinburgh Council awarded a grant to a partnership of Our Future Edinburgh (OFE) and Edinburgh Voluntary Organisations Council (EVOC) to establish a Community Climate Action Forum under their 2030 Climate Strategy.
We hope that Bridie Ashrowan, EVOC CEO, and Charlie Wright, Forum Coordinator – who engages with citizens and groups enabling all to contribute to climate action in the city will share their initial plans.

Edinburgh COP26 Coalition has evolved into Edinburgh Climate Coalition and they will share their ideas along with representatives of the ethnic minority and other groups who ran Edinburgh Climate Festival last year.

In person at Augustine United Church, 41 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1EL plus we hope some or all of it blended so those prevented can attend online. Doors open at 6.00pm for refreshments and viewing the stalls.

The networking event will:
Hear about Scottish Government plans for 2022
Hear about Edinburgh’s 2030 Climate Strategy
Expand ideas from Edinburgh workshops held in October [LINK]
Relate citizen’s initiatives to Edinburgh’s 2030 Net Zero Strategy
Explore how SCCAN’s regional networking fits with planned Forum
Work out how everyone can contribute in our different ways.
