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.
We will be joined by Dr Sam Gardner, Chair of Edinburgh Climate Commission and Councillor Adam McVey, Leader of the Council and Vice Chair of the Commission.
This interactive session will:
- Generate a shared picture of the action taking place in the city
- Explore actions open to civil society, the City of Edinburgh Council and the Edinburgh Climate Commission
- Contribute to our collective ambition for the city and identify ways of working together to accelerate progress.
