Introduction to this site

ScotE3 was initiated by a small group of rank and file trade unionists (mainly working in construction and defence) and climate activists  keen to find a way of taking climate action into workplaces and working class communities. We were inspired by the Million Climate Jobs programme for a transition to a sustainable economy and by the struggles for just transition taking place in working class and indigenous communities in the US and elsewhere.

For up to date information on events and discussion articles do check out the blog and for background information in the form of  briefings that you can download, use and adapt please go to the resources page.  To get in touch you can use the email form on our Contact page.

What we’d like you to do

Invite a speaker from Scot.E3 – we are very happy to talk to union branches and other organisations – use the email form on the Contact Page to get in touch.

Scot.E3 is entirely dependent on donations from organisations and individuals to produce resources, run the website and organise events.  We need to raise money to upgrade this website so that it can become a more effective and user friendly platform for discussion and sharing materials that can help inform debate and action on Just Transition.  We also need funds to produce a pamphlet that provides background to the Manifesto, to continue to produce and print ‘briefings’ and to hold further conferences and seminars.

You can make a one off donation or set up a standing order to Scot.E3, Unity Trust Bank, Sort Code 60 83 01, Account Number 20402455

If you need to send a cheque by post please email for the address.

We are committed to openness and transparency.  You can find a summary of the 2018 conference accounts here.  We will update the accounts regularly on this site.
