ClimateChange@Hutton - Education

The James Hutton Institute carries out workshops and other activities with stakeholders across multiple sectors, looking at how climate change is affecting them and how it will continue to do so. Many of our staff engage with local communities both formally and informally, raising awareness and providing advice.

Our research has a broader impact across Scotland, the UK and internationally, and much of our work in climate change-related research involves finding ways to translate the scientific findings into practical advice for land managers, regulatory bodies and government officials. We also provide resources for teachers, and many of our staff are visiting lecturers and professors at universities in the UK.

As a research institute, we are keenly aware that while it may be us that provides scientific evidence for climate change and its impacts, this evidence will be meaningless unless it is trusted, relied upon and most importantly acted upon. So we have a strong drive to ensure that everyone in Scotland and the UK has access to the best possible information about climate change, how it will affect them and what they can do about it.

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
