Cross Party Group on Towns and Town Centres – Climate Emergency

The purpose of the CPG is to analyse policy prescriptions and develop ideas and innovations. This, in turn, will help Scotland’s towns and town centres through the current economic climate to emerge stronger, smarter, cleaner, healthier and greener.

The September meeting will focus on the Climate Emergency and will invite a range of expert speakers from across related sectors to provide information and discussion on environmental and NetZero solutions for regeneration, active travel, tourism and culture.
