A blog dedicated to making the University of Edinburgh's estates a model campus for the climate transition
The University of Edinburgh is a special place, with an important role to play in helping to lead the climate transition. This blog is intended as a forum for experts from throughout the University to turn their skills inward onto the institution itself, and ask the question: how can we make the University of Edinburgh a model campus for the climate transition? What are the challenges, what are the solutions, what will it cost, and how can we muster the resolve to take decisive action?
