The newly-formed Western Isles Climate Action Network is staging a series of in-person ‘Climate Ceilidhs” to discuss the local impact of the climate emergency.
Announcing the dates, the network explained: “These events aim to create a space for people to come together, share experiences and talk about the issues that are/will affect their local communities.
“They will feature presentations from community groups, information on local Climate Adaptation Plans and CnES’s Climate Change Strategy, as well as provide an opportunity to shape ideas for a Western Isles Climate Hub.”
The first ceilidh will take place on Thursday, February 23, at Talla na Mara in Harris.
The following day there’s a ceilidh planned for Grinneabhat Bragar and Arnol Community Trust.
Two ceilidhs are planned for the Southern Isles at Garadh a Bagh a tuath, Barra, on Thursday, March 2 and at Cnoc Soilleir, South Uist, on Friday, March 3.
All the ceilidhs run from 10 am to 1 pm.
The Western Isles Climate Action Network is an isles-wide network of local groups working with and for their communities.
