Join us on 29th April to discuss the process and outcomes from the Climate Assembly with Kelly McBride, Director of Scotland, at Democratic Society
Scotland’s Climate Assembly brought together people from different walks of life across Scotland, to learn about and discuss the question: ‘How should Scotland change to tackle the climate emergency in an effective and fair way?’
The process was grounded in Scotland’s Climate Change Act (2019) and Assembly Members were selected to be broadly representative of the Scottish population. Over the course of seven weekends, they were tasked with learning about, deliberating, and making recommendations on how we can best tackle climate change. An Interim Report was laid in the Scottish Parliament on 24 March and is available to read at www.climateassembly.scot . A full report with the final recommendations will be published after the Scottish Parliamentary elections in May.
