Scotland’s climate is changing. How Scotland’s places are planned, delivered, adapted and used can help futureproof against the more extreme impacts of climate change. Join us on the 6th of October for the launch of our Carbon Conscious Places report.

Carbon Conscious Places Report

Architecture and Design Scotland recently undertook an exploration into designing for a changing climate, where practitioners use a whole place approach to meet the net zero carbon challenge. Through rethinking how we move about, how we live, how we support town centres and how we become more self-sufficient, we can consider the different ways to address carbon emissions, as well as climate adaptation 

Join Architecture and Design Scotland for the launch of the Designing for a Changing Climate: Carbon Conscious Places Report, which explores: 

  • 8 Principles of a Carbon Conscious place and examples 
  • Vision for Scotland in 2050 – exploring rural, town and urban carbon conscious places  
  • Reflections on 4 Pilot projects in Shetland, StrathardElgin and Glasgow.
