Representatives from The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) have spoken at both the UK Parliament Environment and Climate Change Committee and Scotland’s Climate Assembly.
Scotland’s Climate Assembly
On Sunday 24th January, Debbie Adams, TCV Operations Director discussed how a National Nature Service could help tackle the climate emergency.
Debbie Adams gave a presentation to the Assembly, alongside Deborah Long, Chief Officer at Scottish Environment Link. Together they propose a Natural Nature Service for people not in education training or work to contribute to rewilding and land restoration and adaptation projects.
The Plan focuses on inspiring young people and providing them with skills pathways to enter the nature-based sector.
The Scotland Climate Assembly’s response sets out actions that government will take in order to address their recommendations.
UK Parliament Environment and Climate Change Committee
