The Grimond Lecture
Are the challenges of climate change so great that we should leave them for the world’s leaders, meeting in November in Glasgow? Not at all, says Dr Bobby Macaulay, of Perth College UHI’s Centre for Mountain Studies. Communities can take actions that make a difference, ranging from developing renewable energy schemes to planting woodland, and particularly if they have been able to acquire land of their own to work on. Taking such action, he says, has additional benefits for individual and social wellbeing.
