On Friday 10th May I attended the Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA) Scotland Spring Seminar in Dundee on behalf of Scot.E3. The subject of the seminar was ‘Dealing With Climate Change, Just Transition and Divestment Issues’.
The four presentations grappled with issues of just transition and sustainability from a local authority perspective:
- Climate emergency resolutions and the next steps, Pete Roche, NFLA Scotland Policy AdvisorClimate Emergency
- Sustainable Dundee, Bryan Harris, Dundee City Council Sustainability Manager
- Just Transition and Divest Scotland for new green jobs, Matthew Crighton, FOE Scotland
- Don’t Bank on the Bomb Scotland, ICAN Cities Appeal and Divesting from Nuclear Weapon Producers, Sean Morris and Cllr Audrey Doig, NFLA, and Linda Pearson
You can use the hyperlinks to access the presentations. NFLA have also produced a useful briefing on some of these issues – ‘Climate Emergency’ Declarations and the practicalities in Local Authority Action to go ‘Carbon Neutral’
