Scotland's Climate Assembly's dialogue is now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated. 

Please continue to follow the Assembly on social media (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) or through our website to see how your ideas shape Scotland's Climate Assembly. 

Scotland’s Climate Assembly will bring a group of people together who are broadly representative of the Scottish population. These Assembly Members will take on the task of learning about, discussing, and making recommendations on how we can best tackle climate change. Specifically, the Assembly will be asked to consider ‘how should Scotland change to tackle the climate emergency in an effective and fair way?’. In 2021, the Assembly will report to the Scottish Parliament on the outcomes of their deliberations.

Participation in the Assembly as a member or speaker is by invitation only but we want to hear your thoughts on what you think the Assembly should discuss and who should speak at the Assembly, as well as your ideas on how Scotland can reach net-zero.

Running from 9th to 26th October, everyone will have an opportunity to shape the assembly's deliberations using this platform. Ideas will be taken into consideration in the development of the agenda for assembly weekends and as part of the assembly members' deliberations.
