A week-long series of events designed to raise awareness of climate change began in Aberdeen last Friday.
Special tours, cooking demonstrations, guided ranger walks and bike rides, films, plays and talks are just some of the events planned which aim to educate people on how to reduce their carbon footprint and save money at the same time.
Alison Stuart, director of Aberdeen Climate Action, said: “There are so many amazing sustainability projects going on here in the north-east and it is community action driving them.
“Climate Week is a fantastic opportunity to showcase those projects, gain recognition for the wonderful work they do and inspire others to create their own projects, help in the existing ones or simply make a change in the way they live their lives.
“All of us can do something to help reduce climate change. It is easy to take small steps that all build into making a big difference (and save us money).
“These steps can be as small as changing your home power supply to renewable, growing your own veg and eating less meat, reusing and recycling, using your car less and getting a hybrid or electric car, to starting up your own community project or company with the reduction of carbon emissions as an outcome. There is lots we all can do.”
