Making sense of the clutter

Next month sees the launch of Climate Week which is part of the Scottish Government’s Let’s Do Net Zero campaign which in turn is part of the commitment for Scotland to be carbon neutral by 2045.  And that’s just one of many campaigns and initiatives designed to tackle the climate crisis – some being driven by the Scottish Government, others by civil society. And so, in the interests of helping the average citizen make sense of this fast growing ‘ tackle the climate crisis’ clutter, it would help to have some proper coordination across the piece. Not easy – but important nonetheless.
