Registration Open for The Sustainable Orkney Conference

The Sustainable Orkney Conference will be on for 6 weeks starting on 6th of October.

Originally planned for March 2020, the Conference will bring together local experts and all those interested in what Orkney is already doing and what it can do in the future to decarbonise and be sustainable.

The event will look at initiatives already underway in Orkney ranging from transport, food production and land use, improving buildings, and consumption.

Eibhlin Lee, joint organiser said:

‘Covid-19 has limited what many of us can do day to day but despite this there are lots of things going on in Orkney. We need to know where we are to take the next steps towards Net Zero Carbon together as a community,’

Becky Ford, joint organiser added:

‘This is about finding out what is already happening in Orkney and what is about to come along.’

The conference will be held online using Zoom and there will also be a Sustainable Orkney Conference Discussion Group on Facebook.

The events are free. To find out more and sign up go to http://bit.ly/OREFSoC
