Climate / Film screenings and beach cleans among Climate Week events

PEOPLE are being asked to ‘save the date’ for the upcoming Shetland Climate Week.

The event will run from Saturday 24 September to Monday 3 October, with a range of events focusing on how local businesses, organisations and individuals can combat the effects of climate change.

The full programme will be announced in the coming weeks, and more information can be found online as the event approaches.

Plans are underway for energy showcases, film screenings, beach cleans and more.

The new online resource provides a range of information – on what climate change is, the challenges it poses and what the council’s climate change programme is doing to try to tackle it.

There will be information available to householders, businesses and community groups on what they can do to reduce their emissions, or where they can find further advice and support to do so.

Claire Ferguson from the council’s climate change team said: “We’re planning a fantastic series of events. Householders, businesses and organisations can find out more about the kind of support that’s available to them, we’ll be showcasing some of the wide range of incredible work which is already underway to combat the challenges of climate change, there’ll be activities for children, and events out and about in the community.

“Keep an eye on our website, social media, and the press to hear more – there’s going to be something for everyone.”
