What are Scottish communities doing to address the climate emergency?
Here are stories of the amazing projects some of our communities created with a vision, a vision of a net zero nation.
As part of SCCAN events and exhibitions for the COP26, this film was created by compiling beautiful transformative ideas that our members developed and made happen in the last years.

On Friday 12th November 2021, we held a stall at the COP26’s green zone in the Glasgow Science Centre where we showed the film throughout the day and showcased the ‘We are Net Zero Nation’ exhibition demonstrating how Scottish communities have taken action to tackle the climate emergency. Diverse projects and services from communities who are leading the way on climate action were represented. Short films, posters, workshops, virtual tours and displays of upcycled work were some of the elements of the exhibition. The stall showcased our work and the work of the Lost Woods, Findhorn Ecovillage, Propagate, Gigi Moringa, Bikes for Refugees, Isaro Initiative, Forth Valley Sensory Centre & more. We had workshops and activities, and lots of excellent discussion with participants. Our presence at the COP26 was an excellent opportunity to make the public aware of what is happening at the grassroots level, recruit new members and raise awareness about community climate action in Scotland.
