Christiana Figueres, Former Executive Secretary, UN Climate Convention
Take a look below at all of the things that Edinburgh Science, and our partners, are doing to help combat the climate crisis including our exciting Climate Co-Lab Meetings (formerly Climate Opportunity Ideas Factory).
Plus, we've provided some tips to help you be a little bit greener at the Festival, on the go and at home.
We have a philosophical mission to help foster a scientifically literate society that understands the relevance of science to their everyday life and is able to make informed and rational decisions about the things that affect them. Many of the biggest challenges facing humanity have science at their heart and we see ourselves as a platform for debate and discussion of the science that impacts us most.
We create work with this in mind, from education programmes that invest in developing young people, to events that ask audiences how we might work together – across boundaries, borders, disciplines and cultures – to help build a better world.
Festival Key initiatives
We are assessing our achievements so far and looking for ways to improve year on year, not just in our Festival operations, but in our wider year round work. Through our networks and programme we will also continue to encourage debate, communicate and share best practice around environmental sustainability.
