About Edinburgh Science
Edinburgh Science was founded in 1989 and is most well-known for delivering Edinburgh’s annual Science Festival – the first Festival of its kind and still replicated the world over. We also deliver a year-long programme of school and community-based events which inspire, encourage and challenge people of all ages and backgrounds to explore the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
In 2019 we awarded diplomat Christiana Figueres, instrumental in brokering the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, the prestigious Edinburgh Medal Award. This kick-started an ever-increasing portfolio of Climate work. Our Climate Opportunity Ideas Factory meetings bring Scientists, policy-makers, business leaders and decisions-makers together to come up with solutions to our Climate Emergency.
The NetZeroToolkit has been developed through this initiative and we are able to deliver it due to the kind support of Baillie Gifford, CityFibre, Dickson Minto, Galbraith, M&G, NatureScot Parabola, Pawprint, Ramboll, Target Fund Managers and US Embassy London. It is based on the pledge created by Protect Our Winters UK.
