Place Standard with a Climate Lens is a joint-led project by Sniffer, Sustainable Scotland Network and Architecture & Design Scotland, together with and funded by Public Health Scotland and Scottish Government. It builds on the widely used Place Standard Tool (PST), designed for considering a joined up, collaborative, and participative approach to climate action within a place.

Newly developed Climate Lens prompts have been piloted with 10 placemaking projects from across Scotland and their feedback used to refine a set of resources for factilitators.

These resources can be accessed at

A workshop for early adopters was held online 25th October 2022 to provide guidance on the new Climate Lens resources. A recording of this workshop can viewed below:
