Nationwide sustainability event Congress of the People Planet Pints (COPPP) is coming to Edinburgh on Thursday, November 30th. An alternative to COP28, it is part of a nationwide party to empower people to take action in their local community, and highlight the great work that is already going on.
The event, which is hosted by sustainability professional Constanza Moreno-Sánchez in partnership with The Melting Pot, is the perfect opportunity for those with an interest in sustainability to meet like-minded people, make connections and friends. It’s a chance to enjoy a drink from our sponsor Barney’s Beer while sharing ideas and finding inspiration on how they can take action across the local area. All attendees will be treated to a free drink!
The event will feature an esteemed lineup of guest speakers. Joining us will be Mark Shayler, the author of "You Can't Make Money from a Dead Planet," Laurie Macfarlane, co-director of Future Economy Scotland, Max Schmidt, a Climate Finance Consultant from Perspectives Climate Group, Lee Fitzpatrick from Zebra Growth, and Charlie Wright from EVOC. Get ready for an insightful and engaging discussion on sustainability and the future of our planet.
The free-ticket COPPP event is being held in towns and cities across the country to coincide with COP28, when the world leaders gather in Dubai to discuss climate change.
