Celebrating the Carbon Neutral Islands Project, Environment & Community.
Saturday 25th March 12 till 6 pm
There will be a range of guest speakers and workshops, a clothes swap, games and prize giveaways. Lunch will be provided and local food will be available in the evening.
The main themes include practical sustainability, reuse & recycling, home efficiency, biodiversity, active transport and climate activism. There will also be information on the Carbon Neutral Islands (CNI) Project
The festival is hosted by the CNI Raasay project.
The Carbon Neutral islands project is a Scottish Government programme supporting six islands to become carbon neutral by 2040. Raasay, together with Barra, Great Cumbrae, Hoy, Islay and Yell, has been carrying out carbon audits and developing community climate change action plans. Some of this work has involved looking at housing quality and fuel poverty in great detail. This work complements our broader Healthy Homes survey across Skye, Raasay and Lochalsh.
