Virtual Talk: Celebrate #WorldClimateDay with us

To celebrate #WorldClimateDay, the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement, and as we look forward to COP26 (next year in Glasgow), we invite you to a roundtable discussion looking at environmental questions.

We will be looking at the fascinating project on the Isle of Eigg, a unique island with the world’s first renewably powered electricity grid - off the West coast of Scotland - that has recently been documented in a new photographic book.


- Camille Dressler (European Small Islands Network), resident of the Isle of Eigg
- Jeppe Jensen (Climate Alliance)
- Alexis Chatzimpiros (Samsø Energy Academy), project manager
- Charles Delcourt, photographer

- Introduction by Mairi Gougeon MSP, Minister for Rural Affairs and Natural Environment

- Event moderated by Florent Baarsch, researcher and founder of FINRES

The event will take place on
