How Does EMEN Work?


A Fortnightly Newsletter

Our regular email only goes to EMEN members, and contains invaluable insights into upcoming events and workshops, blogs on best practice, and crucially an opportunity for network members to spread the word about their own events and achievements. 

Stakeholder Engagement

Being part of the EMEN platform allows ethnic minority organisations a unique opportunity to access funding, support and advice from mainstream environmental organisations in Scotland. We need your voice to be heard – EMEN gives you that chance. 


We host regular events bringing all of our stakeholders together. As a subscriber to EMEN, you’ll be the first to hear about training and support on offer, in person and online.
You can browse our upcoming events here.

Why Does EMEN Matter?


The climate crisis is one of the biggest challenges we face. We help to create partnerships to protect the environment's health because it is inseparable from our daily lives. 



We work with people across Scotland to ensure climate justice. We care about the social, economic, public health, and other adverse impacts that climate change will cause. 


We work with diverse communities towards a low carbon society.
Climate change will change the way people live in their built and natural environments. 


We are working on a collective vision of a low carbon society.

Say Hello!

We want to work with organisations, public bodies and funders to tackle the threats and face our planet.
Get in touch with us for collaboration and partnership opportunities.
