Supporting Climate Conversations

What will life be like in 2030? How will we all be living?

The Scotland 2030 Project was designed, in collaboration with a group of climate change community stakeholders to engage the public by translating the Scottish Government’s low carbon ambitions into a picture of how your average day might be in a low carbon future.

Building on this with Climate Conversations, we aim encourage people to start talking about climate change as well as gaining an understanding of the people’s opinions on the actions we may need to take in reducing the causes and the effects of a changing climate.

 

Scotland 2030

The Scottish Government has developed a project to communicate a vision of a future low carbon Scotland, translating the Scottish Government’s low carbon ambitions into a picture of how your average day might be in a low carbon future.  Scotland 2030 includes looking at how we heat our homes and the energy we use, the way we get around, and the food we eat and the goods and services we consume, in a rural, suburban and city setting.

Visit Scotland 2030 to find out what a typical day in a greener future might be like for you, and create your own action plan on what you can do to live a greener lifestyle.

This work was based on narratives of a low carbon life in Scotland in 2030 by ClimateXChange.

 

Climate ConversationsClimate Conversations

The Scottish Government has initiated a series of Climate Conversations to encourage a discussion about how we can reduce the emissions that cause climate change, and prepare for a changing climate.  Feedback from these conversations will support a better understanding of what people feel about the actions needed to cope with climate change.

If you are interested in hosting a climate conversation with a group of friends or a local community group we have developed a How to Guide and associated images to support your conversation.

These resources were based on the research undertaken by Climate Outreach on behalf of the Scottish Government and ClimateXChange.
