Edinburgh Talks Climate – Climate Change and Young People in Edinburgh

Email from Chris Peggie, Governance Officer at the City of Edinburgh Council – requesting that we share the details / links for the ‘Edinburgh Talks Climate’ initiative –  most relevant for young people but open to all members of the public to participate (age immaterial!).

‘The City of Edinburgh Council recently launched Edinburgh Talks Climate, starting a new phase of engagement and collaboration around climate change.

In February, we talked to some of the young people attending the Edinburgh Youth Summit to find out what they feel the key issues are around climate change.  We also discovered why they felt it was important to be included in work and discussions aimed at creating a better, fairer and more sustainable city.

This week, we have launched a follow-up challenge aimed at the interests of younger people in Edinburgh.  We want to know what most concerns people about climate change in Edinburgh and what changes they think need to happen so that the city can become greener and more sustainable. We encourage people of all ages to take part in the conversation.

We’d be grateful if you could share this with your colleagues and networks and ask them to join in the discussion.
