TICC Awarded first-ever Shackleton Medal

The Royal Scottish Geographical Society has awarded its first-ever Shackleton Medal for leadership and citizenship in a geographical field to the Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change Committee of the Scottish Parliament, for its role in developing Scotland’s world-leading climate legislation.

Committee Members pictured receiving the medal from left is myself, Deputy Convener Cathy Peattie MSP, Convener Patrick Harvie MSP, Marlyn Glen MSP and Charlie Gordon MSP.

It is a big honour as a Member to take part in the work and to have accepted this award and as my colleague Patrick Harvie said, "The decision by the Royal Scottish Geographical Society to award the committee is a reflection of the work done but also of the importance of the work which remains."
