12pm – 4pm
SHREC 2021 takes place six months before the eyes of the world turn to Scotland as the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) takes place in Glasgow. This global summit is expected to see the nations of the world come together to agree actions to tackle climate change. With leading figures including David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg prominent in the headlines over the past year, and the Coronavirus forcing new ways of thinking about how our societies operate, it is not far-fetched to suggest that the Highlands can become the focal point for the world because of the positive engagement with renewable energy to-date and the can-do attitude.
SHREC 21 will focus on climate change and will be exploring the current Scottish & UK net-zero legal standpoint as well as discussing why it is that businesses need to take an active interest in the climate change agenda. This is all the more pertinent as countries endeavour to transition to a greener economy following the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Highlands and Islands in particular are well placed to play a big part in delivering solutions which could be exported to the world, and it will be fascinating to get more of an idea from leading figures in our sector of what is being done already, and what can be done. It won’t be one panacea to all the planet’s ills, but lots of small steps and changes which contribute to a more sustainable future. SHREC 2021 can be one of those small steps.
Although it will be a live online event, Harper Macleod will still be making sure that everyone can network and meet each other. They’ll have breakout rooms throughout the online conference where you can bring your own tea/coffee and enjoy a conversation with other delegates. There will be live chat/Q&A available throughout also.
