As the Oil Capital of Europe, Aberdeen is uniquely situated to consider the impacts of the fossil fuel industry on marine life and the local community.
Our oceans are rich, productive ecosystems providing homes to a huge variety of animals and plants and playing an essential role in supporting the health and wellbeing of the UK’s population, our livelihoods, and helping to tackle the climate crisis.
Due to the oil and gas developments happening far offshore , their impact has mostly been out of sight, and thus out of mind for all except those directly involved. However, these developments continue to pose a serious risk to marine ecosystems and the effective protection of the UK’s seas and marine protected areas. The groundbreaking new research report, In Deep Water, a collaboration between Uplift and Oceana lays out these impacts.
At this event at Aberdeen Arts Centre on May 10th, we will be discussing the findings of the research and the need for a just transition to an energy system that is cleaner and safer for people, climate and the ocean.
Come along for a screening of three short films about a Just Transition for Aberdeen, and a friendly discussion about the Rosebank oil field and the marine impacts of oil and gas drilling. This event is open to everyone, the venue is wheelchair accessible and snacks will be provided.
