As we head rapidly towards COP26 and the gathering of world leaders in Glasgow, we at business matters have been making our own contribution to the climate debate. Our business praise event on 20 September featured reflections from former trustee George Scott as well as Sally Fraser, the Workplace Chaplain assigned to businesses and offices in Edinburgh. On 30 September, we worked in partnership with OASIS Edinburgh to host an interview with Ryan Bissoonauth, a project manager for a leading onshore wind developer. If you missed this, you can view a recording via the following link on YouTube: https://youtu.be/Iy1saVeCAxs
During October, we will continue to focus on the environment as we host another business praise event on Monday 25 October. This will be the start of a week of activities in which business matters, Workplace Chaplaincy Scotland and OASIS Edinburgh will be considering the climate emergency from a range of different perspectives. In particular, we would commend to you the Climate Change Art Exhibition at St Cuthbert’s Parish Church from Tuesday 26th to Saturday 30th October between 12 noon to 5pm. There will also be a short service of thanksgiving and worship at St Cuthbert’s on Thursday 28th October at 12.30pm to which all are welcome.
Finally, thank you to those who expressed an interest in taking part in our online forum to discuss the issues and challenges that we face. We intend to follow up our recent interview with another event in November after the completion of COP26. Please keep an eye on the business matters’ website for more details.
