Scotland’s Climate Week will take place between the 13th and 19th of September.
This year’s Climate Week is particularly important as it is in the run-up to the international COP26 climate conference, taking place in Glasgow in November.
Events and activities are planned as part of the wider ‘Countdown to COP’ across Scotland.
Falkirk Council declared a Climate Emergency in 2019 and we are working to reach Net Zero in terms of our direct emissions as an organisation and to support decarbonisation across Falkirk District in a way which is fair and improves the lives of people.
