Join us on Tue Jun 13 2023 at 18:00:00 GMT+0100 (British Summer Time) for an in-person event that will tackle some of the most pressing issues of our time. Climate Change, Disability Inclusion, Wellbeing & International Development . This event brings together experts, local advocates, Government and MSPs to discuss the intersection of these important topics.
It will take place at the Scottish Parliament in Holyrood, Edinburgh, a fabulous location that is easily accessible to attendees. We believe that this event will be a great opportunity for people to learn, connect, and engage with others who are passionate about these issues.
At Climate, Disability Inclusion, Wellbeing & Development, we will explore how climate change impacts people with disabilities, and how we can work to create more inclusive and sustainable communities. We will also discuss the importance of wellbeing and development in building resilient societies, and how we can work together to create a better future for all.
