CARES Conference 2022: Community Climate Action

Tuesday 27 September 2022

Join us for our annual CARES conference, which will take place online during Scotland’s Climate Week. This year we’ll be looking at how communities can take climate action with the support of the Scottish Government’s Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES).

In our plenary sessions we’ll look at the global challenges around energy costs and climate change, and we’ll hear from the communities that are making a difference at a local level. We also aim to bring you inspirational case studies as well as the policy behind the action. We’ll be joined by Patrick Harvie MSP, Minister for Zero Carbon Buildings, Active Travel and Tenants’ Rights.

In the afternoon we’ll look at some of the key skills and actions needed to drive change in your communities in our ‘How to’ sessions. We’ll also take a look at some in-depth case studies on heat and hear from the teams that have successfully delivered projects.

We’ll close with a CARES funding surgery. Find out more about the support available from CARES, speak directly to a development officer for more detailed information, and think about the next steps for climate action in your community.
