SSN Conference – Videos and Resources

Following a successful Sustainable Scotland Network (SSN) conference on 1 November, post-conference pages are now live on the SSN website. These contain videos of presentations from the plenary sessions, along with copies of presentations to download.

The SSN Conference 2016, Public Sector Climate Action: Pathways to 2030, explored how Scotland’s public sector should respond over the next ten years and beyond to delivering on the country’s climate change targets.

The event mixed policy discussion and practical insights, focussing on how to unlock the potential of public sector climate action, how to increase momentum, and how to foster improved partnership working.

Just over 200 delegates from 98 organisations attended the event, with 88% rating the conference as ‘excellent’ or ‘good’.

Conference participants heard from four key speakers, and had the opportunity to attend one of nine parallel sessions, which provided insights into a range of topics.

- Matthew Bell, Chief Executive, Committee on Climate Change
- Professor Sir Jim McDonald, Principal and Vice Chancellor, University of Strathclyde
- Andrew Darnton, Managing Director, AD Research & Analysis
- Heidi Hauf, Principal Sustainability Advisor, Forum for the Future
