During this 2 day course you will explore all aspects of climate solutions and scenarios presented in the research. The Centre for Alternative Technology’s Zero Carbon Britain project offers the hard data and confidence required for visualising a future where we have risen to the demands of climate science. It helps to reduce fear and misunderstandings and open new, positive, solutions-focused conversations. The 2019 Report, Zero Carbon Britain: Rising to the Climate Emergency incorporates the very latest developments in science and technology to show that we can create a zero carbon Britain using only proven technology. 

Live lectures will cover a range of topics from renewable energy and energy efficiency to diets and land-use, looking at how these can work together to help us build a zero carbon future. Workshops will enable discussion and debate among participants on catalysing action across all areas of society.

Invitation to TBI and Black Isle Tourism members for our Spring Event

Black Isle Tourism has revitalised itself after two years of Covid and is delighted to invite you to a morning focussed on marketing the Black Isle as an area for Slow Tourism and Active Travel. 

The new Black Isle map - a map for locals and visitors exploring by foot, bike, bus and car, a joint venture of Black Isle Tourism and Transition Black Isle - will be launched at this event and become available to Black Isle Tourism members.  To complement the map, a 24 page booklet promoting slow tourism on the Black Isle will also be launched, and will be available to members.

Black Isle Tourism’s events provide an informal atmosphere to exchange your own brochures and to talk to other members.  We will be encouraging new members to join, and for our current members to renew their subscriptions.  Our membership fees for this year, stay at the pre-covid rate of £40.00.

The meeting also provides the start of a series of public consultations on the Black Isle Place Plan being developed in 2023 - 'Opportunity Black Isle'. Tourism has to be an important element of the Plan and we are delighted that Nick Wright, the consultant funded by Highland Council to deliver the Plan, will facilitate the discussions.

Refreshments will be provided.
