Description

You are invited to a Fire Starter Festival conversation on How can our capital city achieve carbon neutrality? 1.30 - 4.45pm Wednesday 31 January 2018 at Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI), High School Yards, 12 Infirmary Street, EH1 1LZ.

Free event. Please register via https://fs31jan.eventbrite.co.uk + share at www.facebook.com/events/843183165888783

Join a diverse group of invitees from all our public bodies to consider how citizens can contribute to the huge climate ambition set out in 2050 Edinburgh City Vision: One Year On.

It is the first of the ambitions which emerged from a year of heart-searching involving thousands of contributions from commerce, industry, civil life and citizens:

1. Edinburgh becoming carbon neutral
2. Eradicating poverty as we understand it today
3. Reimagining public space in Edinburgh
4. Making Edinburgh more caring.

From the grassroots it sometimes feels as if the headlong dash for more development, more inhabitants and more visitors does not take into account the need for significantly reducing our carbon - and our ecological - footprint.

The only way to do this is by Pulling Together ... by establishing a common understanding of the challenges and the opportunities. Join us in exploring this challenge!

This is one of the Fire Starter Festival events 29 Jan - 9 Feb. Dozens of collaborative learning events, illuminating creative, disruptive and innovative ways in which we can all transform ourselves, our organisations and the wider system.

The First Minister seeks to empowering individuals and communities to become involved in designing public services. People across Scotland are lighting small fires exploring genuine, participatory methods of engagement, creating innovative and transformative changes.

The Fire Starter Festival shares these fires of change, and deepens our knowledge and skills in transformation. It allows people from all aspects of public service to share innovative and creative ways that are making a difference to Scotland.
