Event Details

Would you like the City of Edinburgh Council to stop investing in climate-wrecking fossil fuels? Do you feel that Edinburgh councillors are doing enough to tackle the climate emergency and other big environmental issues like plastic and air pollution?

Then come and find out what each political party is proposing to do to transform our region’s climate action if they win power. This is your chance to quiz City of Edinburgh Council candidates on their climate policies ahead of the local elections on Thursday 5 May 2022.

Representatives from Scotland’s major political parties have been invited to join (names to be announced soon).

This will be an in-person event with limited capacity – please register in advance via Eventbrite. We’ll also be live streaming the event for all those who can’t make it down.
