Scotland’s climate change ambition means that Scotland’s housing will be moving to a net-zero emissions future. Making homes energy efficient and carbon-free can be an opportunity to improve the quality of our housing stock, tackle fuel-poverty and create jobs. If our transition is going to be just, it has to be fair for all.
At this event you will hear from the Just Transition Commission and experts on Scotland’s net-zero ambitions and what it means for the housing sector.
You will also be able to contribute your ideas on how Scotland can reach net-zero emissions and put an end to fuel poverty in Scotland.
This open event has been arranged by Eco-Congregation Scotland and Stirling Methodist Church, in collaboration with the Just Transition Commission.
Proceedings will be chaired by Rev Mark Slaney, Chair of the Methodist Church in Scotland.
Presentations for key speakers will focus on the key challenge:
How do we combine meeting our climate targets with improving energy affordability and lowering fuel poverty?
Norrie Kerr, Just Transition Commission
