The EMEN provides a platform for organisations and individuals willing to engage in mainstream environmental decision-making in Scotland, representing the voice of the EM sector. CEMVO Scotland supports the building of the Network’s capacity and leadership in order to successfully engage with discussions and developments concerning a sustainable future and promoting more inclusive policy processes.

Network aims to:

  • ENABLE ethnic minority communities and individuals to come together to discuss and raise awareness of climate change issues
  • Develop a collective VISION of a low carbon society
  • Develop a collective and coherent EM VOICE on climate change and climate justice issues
  • Engage in DIALOGUE with relevant decision makers on local and strategic level
  • Increase the PARTICIPATION of EM individuals and organisations in relevant consultations, events and campaigns
  • BUILD leadership

In 2017 we engaged in:
