Udny Climate Action is set to host online events to hear the views of local people on heating and travel.

The group is collaborating with Community Energy Scotland to spread the word on climate change and what can be done on a local level.

Together they will be hosting an online Climate Café to start the debate within the local area and explore changes resulting from climate change. This is aimed at residents within the Udny region, including Pitmedden, Udny Green and Tarves and people out with the area would be very welcome to join.

Community Energy Scotland recently reported that, in Scotland, fuels for heating accounts for approximately half of all energy use, with the remaining half split evenly between electricity and transport.

While most of Scotland's homes use mains gas, Udny and other rural communities use high emission fuels such as oil and LPG or old-style electric heaters.

Udny Climate Action will use the Climate Cafes to connect with the local communities to listen to what residents need and explore collectively potential changes in how we all heat our homes and how we could expect to be travelling in the future.

The cafe will be run on the following three dates to give people a choice of when to join:

Saturday, May 29 at 10am.

Thursday June 3 at 7.30pm.

Tuesday June 8 at 2pm.
