About this Event

About this workshop

Sustainable Scotland Network is organising this workshop on behalf of The City of Edinburgh Council and the Edinburgh Adapts partnership, who are seeking feedback on their recently published draft Climate Ready Edinburgh plan 2024-2030.

The plan covers a wide range of topics such as;

  • why we need to adapt Edinburgh City to the impacts of climate change
  • the most up-to-date projections of how Edinburgh’s climate is likely to change in the future, the impacts of this and the implications this has for the city
  • what Edinburgh City Council is already doing and planning to do to adapt the city through identifying the areas we need to prioritise and the actions we need to take under these priorities to do so.

Aims of the workshop

This workshop will give public sector organisations in Edinburgh an opportunity to discuss the 'Climate Ready Edinburgh' plan 2024-2030 and feedback their views.

The workshop will also explore what 'climate change adaptation' means for the city’s public sector organisations, what adaptation measures they are already taking, the barriers faced and what further advice and support public sector organisations need to adapt.

Who can attend?

This workshop is specifically designed for public sector professionals in Edinburgh.

Please pass on this invitation to anyone in your organisation who would be relevant to the topic of the workshop. We are particularly keen to have staff attend who work in risk management and estates/operations.
