Two Commissioners from the Edinburgh Climate Commission have been confirmed as members of Scotland’s Climate Assembly’s Evidence Group.
Daisy Narayanan, Director of Urbanism at walking and cycling charity Sustrans, and Commissioner Dave Reay, Professor of Carbon Management at the University of Edinburgh, will join a team of individuals provding support and expertise to the Climate Assembly on climate change issues.
Bringing together randomly selected members of the public, the Climate Assembly helps citizens learn about and discuss the issue of climate change, over the course of six weekends until March 2021.
It is an opportunity for people to have a say in climate change policy in Scotland, whilst also identifying the issues and climate actions that matter to them.
At the first event, the Assembly learned about the causes and impacts of climate change, as well as opportunities to address the climate crisis through mitigation and adaptation.
Recommendations from all six events will be presented to Scottish Parliament in 2021 and will be a crucial part of Scotland's transition to a net-zero society.
