An online climate change conference organised during the Covid-19 crisis has been hailed a success.
The Highland Council event last week allowed the public the opportunity to discuss regional, national and global responses to climate and ecological emergencies caused by climate change.
It was attended by a diverse audience and offered the public access to 30 guest speakers.
Councillor Trish Robertson, chairwoman of the Climate Change Working Group, said the high volume of attendance indicates those living and working in the Highland region “are engaged and focused on making positive climate and ecological change”.
People welcomed the opportunity to attend classes and workshops that would enable them to gain better ‘know-how’ of the daily changes they could make to lower their carbon footprint.
Organiser Joe Perry said it provided an opportunity for wider participation whilst delivering the conference in a low-carbon way.
