Working positively together for a climate-friendly Skye

 

Our aim is to work on reducing Skye’s carbon footprint and prepare for the changes that are happening to our climate.

Skye Climate Action came together following the Scottish Government’s Big Climate Conversation in Portree in August 2019.

Together we share information, spread climate awareness and map out the climate-friendly activities that are already happening across Skye.

We also work with other bodies such as the Highland Council, ZeroWaste Scotland and Scottish Communities Climate Action Network to share information and ideas and find solutions. We encourage individuals and groups to take action, and our members are working on a range of issues including reducing waste, re-using materials, a water bottle refill scheme, transport, agricultural plastic waste, school environmental policies and Highland Council policy.

Our emphasis is on practical solutions and action. We have a growing number of people on our mailing list with sub groups in south Skye and north Skye. The full group meets every two months to report back on the various projects and plan ahead.

Come and join us!
