Scottish Communities CAN and the Ethnic Minority Environmental Network have joined forces to create a series of events to help community groups become more effective, sustainable and influential.You’re welcome to come to one, two or all three events.
Session 1: Building a Healthy Culture in Your Organisation
- time: 1-4pm
- date: Wednesday 29th August
- venue: Kinning Park Complex, 43 Cornwall St, Glasgow G41 1BA
- cost: £5: individuals, £15: organisations
While we’re getting on with the work that our community projects care so much about, we often give less attention to how we look after ourselves and one another. Burnout and personal differences are common and can slow or stop the progress of otherwise brilliant projects.

Scottish Communities Climate Action Network is a member of ECOLISE – European Network for Community-led Initiatives on Climate Change and Sustainability. The European Day of Sustainable Communities #EDaySC2018 on 22 September is a celebration of the efforts and achievements of the thousands of local communities across Europe who are taking action for a better, more sustainable world.
The diversity and impact of such community-led initiatives is impressive: from renewable energy cooperatives to community farms and gardens, ecological housing developments, permaculture projects, car-sharing and waste reduction schemes, and much more, these initiatives demonstrate the myriad of different ways that local people can make a positive contribution, with some communities reducing their ecological impact by more than half.
#EDaySC2018 is also about raising awareness among policy makers, at European Union (EU), national, regional and local municipal level, of the scope and potential of community-led action on climate change and sustainability.
Communities are registering events for #EDaySC2018 on the new website: sustainable-communities.net
‘Future voices’ is our new participatory podcast project to give voice to community-led climate action. Specifically, it is about giving you the skills and confidence to start using audio as a means of telling the stories of what you and your community are doing to face up to climate change.
