Net Zero and the Direction of Travel in Scottish HE
How can Scotland’s higher education institutions lead the way in supporting the UK government’s Net Zero ambitions? Where are we right now and where do the future challenges lie? How can the transition towards more sustainable travel be inclusive, fair and support Scotland’s research and teaching ambitions?
This four-part event series explores three key strands of travel through hybrid delivery talks delivered by a range of invited speakers, plus a chaired open discussion.
Reducing emissions from local transport is proving to be a challenge. What kinds of projects are underway at the University of St Andrews that are trying to address this challenge? Will they be enough to meet the University’s 2035 net zero target? Join us as Ali MacLeod (Transition University of St Andrews) explores these questions and highlights the opportunities that will help us meet our business, personal and climate targets.
