Scotland's Civil Service local Environment Network held its inaugural meeting with members from Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), Government Actuary's Department (GAD) and Scottish Government and they agreed unanimously that they need you. The network is a place for all civil servants to work across departments in an effort to share knowledge and learn about environmental issues across four cross-cutting themes;

Climate Change, Natural Resources, Biodiversity and Ecosystems and Sustainable Development.

So, where do we go from here and what can we do?

We would like to invite you to our next meeting. The network have worked together and arranged speakers from -

Zero Waste Scotland - who exist to lead Scotland to use products and resources responsibly, focusing on where we can have the greatest impact on climate change

Home energy - who will point us in the right direction to save energy whilst working from home. 

 How do I get involved?

      When - Wednesday 24 February 2021

      Time - 10:30am to 12:30pm

    This is an excellent opportunity in the year which sees Scotland centre stage for COP26. The team definitely needs you and this is a really worthwhile session! 2 hours is chunk of time but if you are equally passionate, do speak to you line manager to be able to join and perhaps offer to feed back to your own site or team on the outcomes.
