Greener Duns reflects on COP 26
COP 26 came to Duns on Friday (12th November) in a half-day event designed to capitalise on the discussions held at Glasgow’s climate-change summit.
Called COP 26 Duns Reflects and organised by Duns & District u3A, the event featured a panel of speakers from the worlds of low-carbon transport, sustainable food, geology, engineering and low-carbon business strategies. The panelists were:-
Elizabeth Devon – Geologist and Teacher
Paul Minto – Head of Low Carbon Transport, GreenPower Developments Ltd
Morag Garden – Associate Director of Carbon Intelligence – Retail and Manufacturing
Martin Devon – Consulting Engineer and Scientist
Karen Birch – Co-founder of Abundant Borders
Greener Duns took the opportunity to raise its profile and add to the discussion by running the BBC’s six-question Climate Quiz at the event (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-58996348). The Greener Duns stall also proved popular with the audience, and four new members were added to our list.
