Virtual drop-in sessions have been organised for the public to find out more about Stirling’s Council’s Climate and Nature Emergency Plan.
Residents and businesses are being asked for their views on the first draft of the Plan, which will be key in Stirling’s efforts to tackle the climate crisis.
As part of the consultation, three live online events will take place on the Council’s Engage Stirling Platform.
Officers from the Council’s Sustainable Development Team will deliver a presentation and those in attendance will be able to send them questions.
All the events will take place between 5-6pm on:
- Thursday 8 April
- Wednesday 14 April
- Tuesday 20 April.

Drew Leslie, Stirling Council Senior Manager for Infrastructure, said: “Everyone in Stirling has a role to play in tackling the climate crisis so it’s vital our communities participate in shaping this urgent plan for action.
“We can’t carry out the normal face-to-face engagement due to the ongoing pandemic so we have arranged these virtual drop-in sessions to help the public understand the vision, objectives and actions of the document and to provide an opportunity for people to ask questions.
“Addressing climate change remains at the top of the Council’s agenda and we want this to be the same in our communities, so I would encourage as many people to come along to the events and help us take the next steps in this global challenge.”
The Climate and Nature Emergency Plan spells out a vision to improve residents’ lives, help Stirling’s economy thrive and enhance the local environment.
