About this Event

Mesh is a UK community of individuals involved in climate service provision who network locally.

On 6 November Climate Ready Clyde (CRC) together with University of Strathclyde’s Business School (SBS) will host the first Scottish meeting of the network. It will bring together those working in climate change and adaptation across the private, public and third sectors in Glasgow City Region and wider Scotland through an evening of networking and exchanging reflections on their work in the context of climate crisis.

To set the context for discussions, the evening will feature brief talks on approaches to climate change and adaptation by professionals from creative, finance and media spheres.

The event is open to attend for anyone across the UK.
