Presentation: On September 22, 2021, we presented with Scottish Green Map projects during "Climate Fringe Week" which is organised by Stop Climate Chaos Scotland to celebrate and support ways you can engage in climate activism. Check out the Glasgow Green Map full screen!

Our rural and urban examples with Neil Lovelock of Glasgow Eco Trust and from Dunoon, Hannah Clinch of Tacit Design, as well as global climate mapping examples (starting at 8:43) followed with a pop in by the GIS Collective - highlighting climate action that will inspire you before, during and after COP26. Watch here!

TED Countdown climate conference Oct 2021

In person: Our Director, Wendy Brawer, was invited to the TED Countdown conference in Edinburgh from October 12-15th. Lots of inspiring resources are already posted as part of this interaction, including this powerful 2071 piece by Kim Stanley Robinson. Post-conference, she encourages you to watch more of the talks posted on the TED Countdown website, and join us in saying COP26 must be the turning point for the whole planet.

"I had the privilege of hearing Peggy Shepard, the recently knighted environmental justice leader from WeAct in NYC speak from the floor of the TED Countdown conference. She asked this global audience to read the 17 Principles of Environmental Justice (written in 1991) and honor Mother Nature. This is critically important and timely advice for all of us as COP26 nears."
