Edinburgh 2050 — How Will Climate Change Affect Our City?

About the event

What will Edinburgh look like in 2050? By then, after decades of anthropogenic climate change, there will be obvious effects of increased sea level and coastal erosion, and probably more rainfall and flooding, and rising groundwater. Meeting the Scottish Government target to reduce Scotland's emissions of all greenhouse gases to net-zero by 2045 (at the latest) will also change Edinburgh. How will we generate electricity, heat our houses and travel around the city? In what innovative ways might the city and this landscape adapt to reduce carbon emissions? Will we use warm water from Midlothian's coal mines? Spread crushed rock on fields to soak up CO2? Store compressed air?

This walking tour in the Holyrood area – including time in Holyrood Park – aims to promote a positive, forward-looking discussion of how Edinburgh will adapt to climate change and contribute to solutions.

This is a walking tour on city streets and paths within Holyrood Park and is approximately 4km long, featuring some uneven paths and steps. Please meet outside the main door of Dynamic Earth at your starting time.
