The interim report from Scotland’s Climate Assembly, which has brought together people from all walks of life, age groups and regions across the country urges changes to the way we live, what we eat and grow, and how we travel and work in the future are necessary to help Scotland tackle climate change and achieve a greener society.
Measures include ending use of fossil fuels, reducing the amount of meat in our diets, switching to low-carbon transport, rolling out high-speed broadband, investing in innovative technologies and cutting the amount of new goods we buy.
The report states: “The climate emergency is a real and urgent issue that cannot be ignored. It requires immediate action at all levels of society. If we fail to act now we will fail our current and future generations, in Scotland and across the world.”
