Local Action for a Sustainable ScotlandPublished 08 November 2011 in SSN
On Thursday 10th November over 200 delegates will gather at the COSLA Conference Centre in Edinburgh for this 2011 SSN Conference. The audience will reflect a wide range of public sector organisations, private sector companies and community groups – an ideal audience to share experience of aligning public, private and community sector action for a low carbon, well-adapting, sustainable Scotland.
This year 24 local authorities will attend the conference. Many of these councils will also be sharing their experience of local action for a sustainable Scotland via the array of case studies presented at the event. Alongside the 8 case study presentations and workshops in the conference programme, an additional 28 local case studies will form this year’s SSN Conference Poster Exhibition. Posters have been submitted from:
Aberdeen City Council; Aberdeenshire Council; City of Edinburgh Council; East Dunbartonshire Council; East Lothian Council; Falkirk Council; Fife Council; Glasgow City Council; Perth & Kinross Council; The Highland Council; Scottish Borders Council; Solar Cities Scotland; South Ayrshire Council; South Lanarkshire Council; Stirling Council; Sustainable Communities North East; West Dunbartonshire Council and SEPA.
Commenting on the SSN Conference 2011, Sylvia Gray, Chair of SSN, stated:
“The response to the conference this year has been outstanding, proving that SSN remains relevant to Scotland’s climate change and sustainable development agendas. In tough financial times, events like this allow us to share good practice and work together on efficient and effective solutions”.
All presentations and posters will also appear online soon after the event – more to follow in future newsletters.
