Unlocking Local Action: Boosting The Local Economy
Published at : 05 Feb 2021
This is part of our Unlocking Local Action series of events.
Community is the lens so often left out of the environmental discussion, but it’s vital in implementing lasting solutions. Rather than conceiving a “master” climate action plan at arm’s length, people in many areas are co-creating local plans and low-carbon initiatives. In this series of short talks, we hear from guest speakers about how they engage the broader community in their work and compare and contrast the different ways of bringing more people together.
In this session, Gareth Davies of ReFLEX Orkney talks about the ambitious and exciting island-wide integrated energy system being developed in Orkney, including the economic benefits for communities and businesses that work together reducing carbon emissions.
