The SSN Conference is the meeting place for public sector professionals working to improve Scotland’s response to climate change. SSN has members in all of Scotland’s public sector major players, including all local authorities, health boards and further and higher education establishments across Scotland.

Last year’s conference attracted over 200 delegates from across Scotland’s public sector plus a range of partners and stakeholders from business, industry and community groups. We are expecting to attract up to 300 delegates this year.
