Moray Council’s Climate Change Champion, Cllr Draeyk van der Hørn, said: “The climate crisis is already having a significant impact across the world, including in Scotland. But collectively we can work to reduce our emissions to net zero and help create a climate ready Moray.

“Right now, more than ever, it’s important to create conversations that make a difference. This week, let’s share ideas and support each other in taking action to restore our world’s climate and biodiversity. We have no planet B. We look forward to seeing you and let’s talk.”

tsiMORAY’s Third Sector Development Officer, Louise Nicol, added: “Tackling climate change means we must keep the climate conversation going in our local communities. We’re excited to be on the road with Moray Council and other partners to highlight what's happening in the third sector and to hear what people are looking for so we can help them on the climate change journey. If we are to make the changes needed to combat climate change, it will take all of us working together.”
