2014 Matters event: Energy, Environment & Climate Change

Many energy, environmental and climate change problems are global problems that need not only local solutions, but also concerted global action.  How can Scotland play its part in helping to tackle these issues, as part of a union, or as an independent country? 
 
Does Scotland have all the levers it needs to become a low carbon, sustainable country, where people have access to good quality public transport, cycle and walk places, eat well, live in healthy environments and use clean, secure energy?  Does Scotland use the levers it has already to make this a reality?  
 
Join the debate with representatives from both sides of the referendum campaign, because 2014 matters.
 
Speakers include:
 
Sarah Boyack MSP, Scottish Labour and former Scottish Environment Minister
Patrick Harvie MSP, Co-convenor of the Scottish Green Party
Willie Rennie MSP, Leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats
Paul Wheelhouse MSP, Scottish Minister for Environment and Climate Change (SNP)
