The climate crisis is the largest existential threat this country has ever faced but too often the debate can seem remote and detached from people’s daily lives.
Here in Edinburgh we have so many committed groups and individuals all doing their bit to preserve the environment. The idea behind this manifesto was to involve these local people in the process and present a manifesto to COP26 that showcases their ideas and ambitions. We held a series of public meetings with local experts and worked in collaboration with local people to produce this series of demands.
I hope this document demonstrates the passion and commitment of local people here in Edinburgh South.
