After bringing you the online conference Scotland’s Countdown to COP26 in November 2020, CENSIS has once again teamed up with The Herald for another special, free, online conference focused on Scotland’s transition to net zero.

On 26 October 2021, Scotland’s contribution to COP26: a joined-up Just Transition will not only examine the speed and scale at which Scotland must move to tackle climate change, but also ensure that no-one is left behind in the process.

The conference is delivered by CENSIS in partnership with over 25 organisations from across Scotland.

As Scotland gets ready to welcome world leaders to Glasgow for the COP26 Summit, this event will spotlight Scotland’s efforts in tackling climate change to achieve net zero carbon emissions. These efforts also have benefits and opportunities to create a wealthier, healthier, and more equal society.

This free event will look at important just transition themes such as skills, circular economy, empowering young people, improving health outcomes and delivering sustainable economic growth to the Scottish economy.
