Event description

Description

Transition Edinburgh and the Scottish Communities Climate Action Network invite you to a facilitated workshop at 12.30 - 4pm Thursday 7th September at the Serenity Cafe, 8 Jacksons Entry, Edinburgh EH8 8PJ. Register at https://ccbill7sep.eventbrite.co.uk

You will get a chance to:

  • Hear about the Scottish Government's proposed new Climate Change Bill,

  • Discuss how the new legislation might affect your life and work locally, and

  • Give your views on what's needed for the Bill to work for your community.

With a complimentary lunch.

The Scottish Government has invited comments on draft legislation on Scottish targets to tackle Climate Change. This will amend the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 ... with more ambitious, transparent, effective targets.

YOU can help make sure the revisions to the Bill will work for communities across Scotland.

This is an exciting opportunity to work within the established democratic structures, make our voices heard in government, and ensure that community concerns for the country and coming generations are acted upon.

This workshop is part of a national tour organised by Scottish Communities Climate Action Network. The SCCAN team will compile all the responses and present a report to Scottish Government in October 2017.

In preparation for the workshop, you may want to read the Consultation Paper and associated Strategic Environmental Assessment Environmental Report at https://consult.scotland.gov.uk/energy-and-climate-change-directorate/climate-change-bill/. We will also explain these documents during the consultation.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us on info@scottishcommunitiescan.org.uk
