How do you think Scotland should deal with climate change? Join our Climate Change Bill policy consultations and make your voice heard!

CCBillgeneralCalling all community organisations, members, and individuals who have an interest in how Scotland will deal with climate change! Here is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. We are organising six community consultations to gather your views and ideas around the new Climate Change Bill. They are being co-hosted by some of our different member organisations across Scotland and we are working hard to put together a good workshop programme to make the consultations accessible, enjoyable, and inspiring.

During these 3 hour workshops we will

  • explain what you need to understand about the Bill
  • discuss how it will affect your life and work locally
  • support you in formulating a response
  • gather feedback from you and submit our own report to Scottish Government

A free lunch and/or refreshments will be provided at all sessions.

The Climate Change Bill is the new legislation the Scottish Government is proposing to define how to drive action to mitigate climate change. This is the bill that will follow the 2009 Climate Change Act with hopefully more ambitious, transparent, and well-functioning targets. This is an exciting opportunity to work with our democratic structures, make our voices heard in government, and ensure that our concerns for the country and coming generations are acted upon.

If you want to read up more on the Climate Change Bill consultation, see this page, and more specifically the consultation paper, and if you are interested this environmental report.
