With over 80% of local governments declaring climate emergencies we can see high levels of ambition for local climate action in cities, rural areas, and island alike. Glasgow has been at the forefront of much media attention as they gear up to host COP26.
The city has a target of reaching climate neutrality by 2030, and the council has set up the Sustainable Glasgow Board to help deliver this. Orkney has also been hailed as leading the way on climate action, and over the past few decades has seen a plethora of innovation activity in the energy sector. Join us to explore how these regions are delivering on their climate ambitions, the challenges they face, and the role of their communities and citizens.
