Holyrood’s Climate Action Summit 2023 will take place at Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh 8-9 November, with the ever-popular Climate Action Awards and ceilidh on the evening of 8 November.
The Scottish Government has legally binding, ambitious targets in place to meet net zero by 2045. However, a recent progress report to Parliament by the Climate Change Committee claimed that Scotland had lost its lead over the rest of the UK and Europe on tackling climate change.
Holyrood’s solutions-based, forward-thinking Climate Action Summit 2023 will consider what practical steps need to be taken now if Scotland is to achieve both its net zero and nature restoration targets.
The event will take place following the consultation on the Scottish Government’s Draft Energy Strategy and Just Transition Plan, and publication of draft Just Transition Plans for Buildings and Construction, Land Use and Agriculture and Transport. It will also coincide with their forthcoming Climate Change Plan, expected at the end of 2023, and explore topics including:
- Agriculture and the rural economy
- Enablers such as skills, leadership, and funding
Join us in November to hear the latest policy updates, examples of best practice and network with public, private and third sector colleagues working within the climate action space.
