Climate Week 2017

Taking place from 18-22 September Climate Week 2017 is a Scottish Government campaign to raise awareness of, and inspire action on, climate change.

The aim of Climate Week is to get organisations across Scotland hosting one – or several – events that highlight the importance of reducing emissions and adapting to a changing climate.

Climate Week presents a great opportunity to engage and inspire your colleagues or the public. Whether you run one event or several, you’ll find out what people think, get some conversation going and enable further climate friendly actions.

 

Above is a video from Scottish Government, highlighting some of the thinking behind establishing the Climate Week campaign. It also provides a taster of the events the Scottish Government organised for their Climate Week in 2015.
