The Scottish Government has published a public engagement strategy “demonstrating how it will work with others to drive forward Scotland’s transition to a low carbon society.”
The document can be accessed here.
The aim is to:
- inform people in Scotland about the climate change targets specified by the Act,
- encourage them to contribute to the achievement of those targets, and
- identify actions people in Scotland may take to contribute to the achievement of those targets”.
The strategy sets out how the Government plans to engage communities, individuals, the private sector, the public sector, the educational sector, trades unions, voluntary and third sector organisations and the media.
Whilst this document might sound really dry, it actually describes practical actions in relation to all of these sectors, listing specific organisations that the Government will be working with and the outcomes expected. The official overview of work on climate change is very informative.
