About the conference

At our members’ request, the Climate Crisis will provide our 2020 Conference's overarching theme – an issue which affects us all, but is particularly hard-hitting for the people and communities we work with, who are forced to contend with the far-reaching consequences of climate change on the front line.

Taking place at a critical moment in the fight to tackle the effects of the climate emergency, our Conference falls in the months leading up to the 26th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 26) to the UNFCCC, when Scotland will provide the stage for the world’s leaders and climate experts to negotiate ways forward on what is widely acknowledged as the biggest economic, environmental and moral issue that our planet faces today. 

Attendees can look forward to a packed day of inspiring keynote speeches and interactive breakout sessions, exploring topics such as how to make climate action gender responsive, supporting just transitions promoting climate justice through meaningful partnership, and ensuring that the voices of those most affected by climate change are heard.
