Supporting public sector action through three key programmes
In conjunction with the SSN strategy launch, SSN has set out three key programmes to support the public sector action in Scotland.
Working together to support a low carbon future in Ayrshire
SSN is working with South Ayrshire Community Planning Partnership on a new project which explores how the Partnership can support a low carbon future in the region. The project has been developed to support collaborative action on the climate emergency, with the Community Planning Board recognising the need to identify how partners can work together to drive this agenda locally.
Food for Life Scotland
Food for Life Scotland (FFLS) is a Scottish Government funded programme which supports public sector food service to deliver not only on climate but also on public health and economic priorities. With the concurrent crises of pandemic, recession and climate emergency, programmes such as FFLS that can support a green recovery are increasingly relevant to Scotland’s public sector.
