Finance Mobilisation for Climate Resilient & Carbon Neutral Communities

The Centre for Sustainable Solutions worked with the University of Strathclyde as part of the COP26 Universities Network to organise this event. Keeping in mind the ethos around COP26, we aimed to illustrate the importance of partnership working with businesses, organisations and communities in tackling the challenge of mobilising climate finance.

In particular, the discussion brought together people across sectors to discuss:

  1. The climate investments within the £30BN Greenprint and Green Deal in Glasgow;
  2. The work that University of Glasgow, University of Strathclyde and the City and Region have done and the ideas that were generated with the city via the Centre's Green Recovery Dialogues and Senior Leadership Roundtable;
  3. The work related to using Glasgow as a Living Lab and Climate Neutral Districts;
  4. How a ‘whole systems’ approach at scale can enable climate action and enable a focus on people and social justice; and
  5. Reflecting on Salix Finance as an enabler of change and future scalar climate investment.
