Holyrood’s Climate Action Awards, presented by Dougie Vipond, celebrated Scotland’s climate champions at an awards ceremony on 8th November in central Edinburgh to mark the first day of the Holyrood Climate Action Summit. Featuring inspiring tributes to key players across technology, nature, and the circular economy, the awards were a chance to recognise Scotland’s progress towards Net Zero, two years on from COP26 in Glasgow.
The Seas and Coasts Award was won by Seawilding, the UK's first ever community-led native oyster and seagrass restoration project. Phillip Price, who accepted the award on behalf of the charity, expressed his “delight” at winning, alongside an impassioned “plea for greater action” to protect vulnerable coastal habitats against the effects of climate change.

A huge thank you to our volunteers, funders and our amazing community for helping to make our seagrass and oysters famous!
