22 December 2020

Article: 54/5109

The Scottish Government has launched a consultation on the ‘Climate Change, Net Zero Nation’ draft public engagement strategy, which sets out the overarching framework for engaging the people of Scotland in the transition to a net zero and climate ready nation. The strategy aims to mark a change in how the role of public engagement in climate change is understood, moving from encouraging incremental changes in attitudes and behaviours, to facilitating a society-wide transformation. 

The Scottish Government has published this strategy as a draft for consultation, with the ambition of developing a refreshed approach to collaboration with stakeholders across Scotland. The aim is to maximise the effectiveness and inclusivity of this strategy for the people, communities, and organisations that will be at the heart of delivering it.

The consultation is open until 17 March  2021, and can be viewed on the Scottish Government website.
