Eric Dawson from Architecture+Design Scotland has provided an interesting and insightful summary of his day at Scotland’s Adaptation Conference – we’re cross-posting it here!
A+DS has been pleased to support and collaborate with Adaptation Scotland / Sniffer in relation to climate change initiatives that have included training events and the recent launch of the short film ‘Adapting to Change: Scotland’s Climate Stories’.
This article provides a summary of Scotland’s Adaptation Conference on ‘showcasing – engaging – inspiring’ which was held at Our Dynamic Earth on 9 September 2013. The event was organised by Adaptation Scotland and Sniffer, and sponsored by SEPA, SNH and The Scottish Government.
The event featured a series of presentation, and the keynote address was provided by Paul Wheelhouse MSP, Minister for Environment and Climate Change, who noted evidence that climate is changing and that key challenges lie ahead.
The Minister spoke of a need to become more resilient through forming new partnerships and collaborations. He described a need for a shared vision, and referred to examples of work being done by ‘Climate Ready Clyde’ and Tayplan.
