Delivering Climate Action Projects during COVID-19 online networking event

The ‘Delivering Projects during COVID-19’ online networking event aims to bring together community-led organisations from all over Scotland who are delivering climate action projects in the current situation.

Keep Scotland Beautiful invites community-led organisations who are actively involved, or interested in, taking action on climate change in their communities to what should be an interesting and inspiring session. The event has been organised as part of our management of the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund (CCF).

In this online event you will have the opportunity to ‘virtual network’ with other participants and hear from some climate action projects, funded through the Scottish Government’s CCF, on how they are delivering activities and communicating climate change during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

As Scotland (and the world easies out of lockdown) what comes next? You will also have the opportunity to discuss what the role of communities are in Scotland’s green recovery post COVID-19.

The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) recently wrote to the Prime Minister and the First Ministers of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. In this letter the CCC sets out six key principles to rebuild the nation following the COVID-19 pandemic whilst delivering a stronger, cleaner and more resilient economy. We will use these six key principles as the basis for our discussion, you can read what these are via https://tinyurl.com/y8a8tdbh.
