Our city has an ambitious target to reach carbon neutral by 2030.  Join this roundtable to collectively build momentum across civil society and local government to meet the target in Edinburgh.

We’re inviting people in civil society organisations whose purpose is to generate awareness and action on emissions reduction across Edinburgh.  The event is co-hosted by civil society and The City of Edinburgh Council.

This interactive session will:
