In the run up to COP26 and beyond, it is important to develop our own personal and business understanding of climate change, by starting with the facts, science and what is possible.
The Climate Solutions Accelerator, administered by Jump Digital on behalf of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, is a short course imparting knowledge of practical solutions that can be implemented to help tackle climate change. Learn directly from world-leading experts, including global campaigner Greta Thunberg, ex-Irish President Mary Robinson, former Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, and recent UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
The Accelerator offers a simple and quick way to gain significant understanding of one of the most important issues of our generation, and will help prepare individuals and organisations for this transformation, and outline where the opportunities lie.
In partnership with The Herald and RSGS, we are offering ScotlandIS members a 10% discount to undertake the Climate Solutions Accelerator.
Simply follow this link and select the dropdown box for ScotlandIS, or ask for more information. Any member looking for more than 10 people to go through programme will be offered further discounts.
Some of the ScotlandIS team have already completed the Climate Solutions Accelerator themselves, finding it a highly interesting resource that offers a deeper understanding of how to tackle the issue of climate change.
Marc Strathie, ScotlandIS Head of Research and Policy, commented: “I really enjoyed the “policy” section and given my passion for evidence-led policymaking, it was thoroughly enjoyable. The course was very interactive and the level of detail was second to none.
“Consumers, investors and employees will make decisions based on how committed companies are to changing our world for the better — from diversity to environmental responsibility. I’m proud to have earned my certificate.”
Ciara Mitchell, Head of ScotlandIS Cyber, commented: “As someone who is not spending enough of my time educating myself on the climate challenges, I have learnt lots in a short space of time and now have a much better understanding of the challenges ahead and the urgency needed. I would recommend this to everyone, at all levels of business, as we all need to be part of the solution and there is so much we can all do both at a personal and business level.”
ScotlandIS published Scotland’s first ever analysis of its Climate Tech landscape in March, in conjunction with Scottish Enterprise. This report offered insight into the innovations currently being made by the technology sector towards reducing carbon emissions, and the economic opportunities that this could present for Scotland.
You can read the full report, including case studies and additional resources, in the ScotlandIS Climate Tech Hub.
