Solutions to the nature-climate crisis in Scotland

December 16, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm


As the Biodiversity COP15 closes in Montreal, committing to the 2030 framework for global and national actions to halt the loss of biodiversity, we present outstanding work in Scotland to overcome the nature-climate crisis.

We draw on some of the best examples of biodiversity action in Scotland to inspire our work as we develop a new 25-year Scottish Biodiversity Strategy. You will hear about Riverwoods, Scotland’s Rainforest restoration, the Flow Country peatland restoration, Scottish pollinators, Scottish Invasive Species Initiative, the Darwin Tree of Life, Species on the Edge, and Seabirds in peril. We have a mixture of presentations, a Panel discussion, and ample time to mingle and enjoy food and refreshments.

Contributors include:

  • Francesca Osowska, Dr Mike Cantlay and Graham Neville, NatureScot
  • Professor Mat Williams, Scottish Government Chief Scientific Adviser for Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture
  • Professor Anna Meredith, The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh
  • Susan Davies, Scottish Seabird Centre
  • Professor Colin Campbell, James Hutton Institute
  • Dr Paul Walton and James Silvey, RSPB
  • Jo Pike and Sarah Robinson, Scottish Wildlife Trust
  • Julie Stoneman, Plantlife Scotland
  • Rebecca Yahr, RBGE

We have the support of the following organisations:
