Sustainable Dundee is working to tackle the Climate Emergency, but we need your support!
Join us on our #DundeeClimateJourney
You may have noticed some interactive signs popping up on objects around Dundee, asking people to have a friendly chat. Using Hello Lamp Post, an innovative engagement platform that makes public spaces interactive, we’re looking to hear from our diverse community about how they feel and share some information about how to take action against climate change. Users will even have the opportunity to win a prize if they take our Dundee Climate Action quiz!
