Global to Local Policy Context for Climate Change and Sustainability

Date Date To Be Confirmed
Venue Queen Margaret University

New to working in climate change and sustainability, or need a better understanding of the policy context and how the whole environmental agenda developed?

Join this interactive EAUC-Scotland training session to develop a broad understanding of the key policy areas and structures you should be aware of when working in climate change and sustainability – locally, in Scotland, in the UK, in Europe, and globally. We will also explore a global history of sustainability and climate change awareness and policy development, allowing you to develop an understanding of how we got to where we are today.
This is an interactive workshop, encouraging participants to reflect on their own understandings of climate change and sustainability policy, and how it affects their lives and work.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this course you will be able to:
  • Explain simple policy language
  • Identify key sustainability policy developments on a global, EU, UK, and Scottish level
  • Understand the role of local policies and strategies
  • Summarise the development of climate change and sustainability policy agendas
  • Use key resources to identify policies relevant to your work 
Please note this is one of the six sessions in the EAUC-Scotland Accelerator Programme. If you are interested in this session or any of the other modules of the programme, please contact us for details of when these will be scheduled.
