Let's talk climate action

On 15 March, Icon Chief Executive Sara Crofts will be speaking at “Now we have your attention: let's talk climate action,” - a public program being put on by Historic Environment Scotland at Edinburgh Castle.

Watch a live stream of the sold-out event here.

The program will explore how we can inspire people to take climate action, with arts, culture and heritage perspectives as part of the conversation. 

The event will feature one of the world’s leading climate change communicators, Professor Katharine Hayhoe, who will share her experience of finding effective ways of communicating the climate crisis. Professor Hayhoe will then be joined by a panel of invited experts, including Sara, who will each share their experience of talking about climate change and how they have used their varying areas of expertise to reach new audiences, changing hearts and minds along the way.

The program will be broadcast live on Historic Environment Scotland's Facebook page. The event will also be recorded for release on Historic Environment Scotland's YouTube channel at a later date.
