Sustainable Scotland Network Conference 2016
Public Sector Climate Action: Pathways to 2030
1st November, Glasgow
Registration is now open for the Sustainable Scotland Network’s annual conference, taking place in Glasgow on 1 November. The 2016 SSN Conference, Public Sector Climate Action: Pathways to 2030, will be held at the University of Strathclyde’s Technology and Innovation Centre. Last year over 200 delegates attended the annual event, widely regarded as the key conference for public sector professionals working to improve Scotland’s response to climate change. The conference is supported by the Scottish Government and Glasgow City Council.
Confirmed speakers include Matthew Bell, Chief Executive of the Committee on Climate Change, Professor Sir Jim McDonald, Principal and Vice Chancellor of Strathclyde University, and Andrew Darnton, Managing Director at AD Research and Analysis, an independent research company applying behavioural theory and insight to improve action on climate change.
A wide range of parallel sessions are also being developed for the conference. Topics will range across business transport, active travel, energy systems, energy efficiency, procurement, food systems, and co-benefits of addressing climate change, behaviours and cultural change.
Delegates are expected from the majority of Scotland’s public sector organisations including local authorities, universities and colleges, NHS boards and a range of national public agencies. The conference also forms part of the engagement process feeding into the Scottish Government’s forthcoming Climate Change Plan.
Delegate bookings can be made via the SSN Conference 2016 website.
The SSN is supported and coordinated by Keep Scotland Beautiful, the charity that works with organisations and communities to help people to reduce carbon emissions, improve local areas and adapt to the impacts of climate change. It's part of our work to make Scotland clean, green and more sustainable.
