Join us on Monday 26 September, the opening day of Scotland's Climate Week, to launch the new Place Standard Tool with a Climate Lens resources

Chaired by Professor Dave Reay, and with opening comments from Patrick Harvie MSP, this event will explore some of the different ways in which communities can encourage climate action and participation in a local setting.

The Place Standard Tool 2.0 with a climate lens is a joint-led project by SnifferSustainable 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.

You will also hear from members of Scotland's Climate Assembly speaking about how they have championed climate action locally since the Assembly's conclusion. Dr Oliver Escobar will introduce participative processes, including some of the benefits and practical tips for communities.

Accessibility: the event will include BSL translators.

Registration: via a MS Team link.
