Call for climate stories at Highland Climate Change Conference

25th September 2021

The Highland Climate Change Conference is taking place on Thursday 21 and Friday 21 October 2021.

Chair of Highland Council's Climate Change Working Group, Cllr Trish Robertson, said: "The conference is a fantastic opportunity to bring people together from across and beyond Highland to discuss the climate and ecological emergency.

"It is really important that we hear local voices at this conference, so please share your climate or ecological stories."

The Council is looking for pre-recorded videos which highlight green or sustainable action taking place in Highland. All contributions will need to be recorded in advance of the conference and then sent to carbonclever@highland.gov.uk

Joanne Allday, Strategic Business Development Manager at the Port of Cromarty, added: "We're delighted to support this year's Highland Climate Change Conference, particularly in light of the exciting renewable energy and decarbonisation projects which Port of Cromarty Firth are involved in.

“There is a multi-billion pipeline of sustainable opportunities for the Highland region linked to offshore wind, floating offshore wind and green hydrogen, and the Cromarty Firth is uniquely placed to support these high growth sectors.

“We are working closely with Highland Council to drive forward the region's decarbonisation ambitions and meet our net zero targets."
