Sustainable Scotland Network’s 11th annual conference will address how Scotland’s local authorities and public sector organisations can better deliver action on climate change and sustainable development, looking at:
- Sharing Good Practice – profiling a wide range of good practice including: leadership presentations, quick-fire case studies, and a ‘knowledge exchange market place’ to enable networking and learning.
- Scaling up Action – exploring how the public sector can overcome some of the key challenges to increasing the scale and pace of action on sustainable development and climate change.
- Building Partnerships – providing an opportunity to meet sustainable development and climate change practitioners from across the public sector, allowing experience to be shared and partnerships to be developed.
The SSN Conference 2012 is being organised in conjunction with the Public Sector Climate Action Group and is highly relevant to leaders and sustainability practitioners in local government and the wider public sector. It is also relevant for those in the private and voluntary sectors who work with public sector organisations.
