What We Do Informing Policy Climate Emergency Summits Following the Government's announcement of a climate emergency, we held a solutions-focused climate summit at our offices in August 2019 with representatives from over 30 organisations, including NGOs, businesses, local authorities and Government agencies. Producing literally hundreds of ideas, we published a document detailing some of the key priority areas for action and submitted this to Government. Since then, we have held further summits, and plan to continue these brainstorming meetings in the months ahead, via Zoom. Our summits provide a space for motivated people from across the sectors to come together in a safe and open workshop environment to offer solutions to the climate emergency. These facilitated sessions are designed to use the collective expertise of participants to highlight purposeful actions and good practice examples, and to influence policy making. We have held summits and produced reports covering the following issues: Shaping the Change: Building the World You Want to See Financing the Transition: Tax & Subsidies Nature-Based Solutions (with NatureScot) Construction (with Zero Waste Scotland) Coronavirus & A Green Recovery (with Zero Waste Scotland) Food (with The Pebble Trust) Procurement (with Zero Waste Scotland) Land (with NatureScot and The Scottish Land Commission) Transport and mindmap (with Smarter Choices, Smarter Places, and Transform Scotland) Soil and mindmap (with NatureScot and the Macaulay Development Trust) Culture Change and mindmap (with Creative Scotland) We also held an extra 'focus workshop' on geopolymer cement, which allowed a detailed, specific look at issues surrounding cement, an industry which is responsible for c8% of global carbon emissions.
