Strand 3: Digital Conversation (22 AUGUST)
The final strand of the public engagement programme for The Big Climate Conversation was the digital conversation. Hosting a conversation online was an important way to ensure that individuals who were unable to take part in a workshop or a community event, for whatever reason, were still able to have their voices heard.
The digital conversation took place on the Scottish Government’s Climate Change Twitter page (@ScotGovClimate) between 12:30 – 14:30 on 22nd August. The questions mimicked those used in the facilitated workshops and were posed through a combination of tweet text and images.
Participants were encouraged to engage with the Twitter questions either by replying directly to the post or by tweeting their opinions using the hashtag ‘#BigClimateConversation’. In total, 82 responses were received during this digital conversation.
