The first-ever Cumbrae climate festival is coming to the island next week.

The event will celebrate the island's carbon neutral ambitions achieved and give the opportunity for islanders to ask questions about sustainability.

The publication of their Climate Action Plan, produced as part of the Scottish Government’s Carbon Neutral Islands project, will push the island towards key actions that will help it achieve a green future.

The pioneering project is supporting six islands - Great Cumbrae, Barra, Hoy, Islay, Raasay and Yell - to become carbon neutral by 2040.

Each island community has developed its own plan, which sets out the key actions they will take to help them achieve a carbon neutral and sustainable future.

On Cumbrae, these priorities include improving insulation in homes, upgrading to more energy efficient heating systems and looking at community owned renewable energy generation.

The festival will be joined by delivery partners involved in the Carbon Neutral Islands Project including Home Energy Scotland, Green Home Systems, NatureScot and North Ayrshire Council.

It will also showcase the work by pupils of Cumbrae Primary School from their climate art project.

Organisers say it will be a great opportunity to catch up on the work of the project on Cumbrae and have any questions answered on home energy efficiency, renewables, heating and flood defence.

It will take place at Garrison House from 2-7pm on Wednesday, April 24.
