SCCAN April 2021 newsletter
Recording of a talk by and discussion with Professor Pete Smith
On 6th of April, 38 participants from across Scotland gathered online to listen to the renowned climate scientist, Prof Pete Smith. We reflected upon our current understanding of climate change, what individuals can do to reduce emissions and what resources can help in communicating the urgency for change.

March 2021 Meeting report
This was a first, tentative exploration of how our network can individually and collectively reach out to engage with those not often heard and so achieve greater diversity & inclusion. 22 people from all over Scotland participated, of the 32 who registered.
We reflected on the links between climate change and climate justice. Education has a key role to play so that people know the colonial history behind it and can make decisions based on this. If we could change this then there could be a paradigm shift in responses to climate change in Scotland.
The focus was on finding who we need to reach out to; and ways in which we can do this to increase widespread participation in society.
