The Next joint Tayside SEN Event is planned for Tuesday 23rd February at 10.00am Via Zoom. The subject of the discussion will be around the Social Enterprise Net Zero Strategy –see item below for more details- and how Social Enterprises will be key to contributing towards Scotland’s transition towards Net Zero by 2045. We hoped to be joined by representatives from Zero Waste Scotland and Circular Tayside. Please note, this is for all social enterprises, not just those with a specific focus on climate change. Booking details will be emailed out and shared on our social media pages.
