The economic crisis caused by the global health pandemic has been unprecedented in the postwar history of the world. However, it offers the chance of a green recovery. It is time to take bold and decisive action to build a resilient, circular economy that prioritises the growth of people and protects the planet.
Key stakeholders from across the public, private and third sectors, including Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, and Asad Naqvi, Head of the UN PAGE Secretariat, got together to discuss how Scotland can rebuild better as part of a green recovery.
The successful launch event of our Climate Emergency series, Green Recovery, championed the industry-leading work being done in Scotland. Held in November, the conference looked at international best-practice and how we can bridge any implementation gaps.
This event is now available on-demand. Access the video now to learn how we can work together, across borders and sectors, to deliver climate resilience and prioritise wellbeing as part of our economy and our society.
This event was part of Holyrood’s Climate Emergency Series, held in the run up to COP26. The series engages key decision-makers and stakeholders in discussions about how Scotland can secure a net-zero through a more inclusive and sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.
