High School Yards, EH1 1LZ Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Brexit will impact many areas of public life — but how will it affect our environment? Will we be able to adequately protect our natural resources and wildlife? And will it change Scotland and the UK’s efforts to avert a climate catastrophe?
2050 Climate Group has assembled a panel of experts to help answer your questions. Our speakers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and political standpoints, covering topics ranging from environmental law, to wildlife conservation and international emissions targets.
You can follow our social media accounts as we reveal our speakers in the following weeks (or we will send you an email update once we have revealed our full panel).

In the first hour, our panel members will each give an overview of how, in their view, the UK leaving the European Union will affect the environment and action towards addressing climate change challenges. We will then open the discussion up for questions from our audience (questions can be submitted in advance, or on the day). The aim of this event is not to have a heated debate on Leave or Remain — but to provide young people with an opportunity to learn from our panel about Brexit and associated environmental issues.

Timings:
Doors will open to the public at 6.30pm for networking and refreshments (tea, coffee and pastries). The main event will begin at 7pm, and finish at 9pm.

Accessibility:
The venue is fully wheelchair accessible. Induction loops are installed for people with hearing impairments, and microphones will be used during the talks and the discussion section. There will be a 10 minute interval halfway through the event.
