Have your say on the Climate and Ecological Emergency!
– Would you reduce how much meat you eat?
– Would you give up your car to help stop climate change?
– Would you switch to renewable energy for your house?
The Scottish Government has hosted several engagement events where they invited the public to give their thoughts on how they feel about what Scotland is doing and what they think Scotland needs to do going forward to combat the global issue of climate chaos.
These events were held across the length and breadth of Scotland and were all over-subscribed. So Transition Edinburgh invites all local groups in Edinburgh to a Local session. Everyone is welcome! You don’t need to know anything about climate change to join in the discussion – we are looking to hear opinions from everyone regarding changes that will affect all of us.
“The Scottish Government are setting world leading targets to be the first country to reach net-zero emissions by 2045. Reaching our targets must be a shared, national endeavour involving people in their schools, workplaces and communities as well as government. The views you share at these conversations will help the Scottish Government develop a new public engagement strategy that will help Scotland transition to a greener and more sustainable society that we can all be proud of.
Follow twitter @ScotGovClimate in the coming weeks.”
