Climate Change being written in green text

Places are filling up fast for the first of a series of Scottish Government Big Climate Conversation events being held across the country this summer.

The Scottish Government is inviting members of the public to a series of event to give their views on how they feel about what Scotland is doing, and what Scotland needs to do, to combat the global issue of climate change.

These events will be held across the length and breadth of Scotland and they hope you will go along and have your say. The first six events - including Fort William, Portree and Orkney - are filling up fast, with some sold out already. 

Everyone is welcome! You don’t need to know anything about climate change to join in the discussion – they are looking to hear opinions from everyone regarding changes that will affect all of us.

  • Did you know that Scotland has declared a climate emergency?
  • Would you reduce how much meat you eat?
  • Would you give up your car to help stop climate change?
  • Would you switch to renewable energy for your house?

Please see below details for the first six events. There will be more opportunities to get involved following these with further details coming soon. The Scottish Government encourage you to keep an eye out for further information about these events which will be available on their twitter @ScotGovClimate in the coming weeks.
