CCF Peer-Peer Regional Climate Network Meeting – Grampian. Wednesday 30th September 2015

Eventbrite page: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ccf-peer-peer-regional-climate-network-meeting-grampian-tickets-17438991493

The Regional Peer to Peer Climate Networks are a chance for community groups taking action on climate change – whether they are CCF funded or not – to come together, share expertise and ideas, and identify ways of working together and supporting each other.

This will be the second meeting of the Grampian group – covering Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray.  We’ll spend some time learning about each others’ projects and develop ideas for working together.  We’ll be joined by a representative of Home Energy Scotland, who’ll give an update on the schemes and support available, and discuss how best community groups can access these.  We’re encouraging any group working in the fields of energy efficiency, fuel poverty, food growing, local food, waste reduction or sustainable and active travel, to attend the event, as we hope it will be of benefit to you.

If you’re interested in finding out more about this meeting please email Russell Gill at Keep Scotland Beautiful russell.gill@keepscotlandbeautiful.org

12 Regional Peer to Peer Climate Networks are being set up by Keep Scotland Beautiful.  These should become self-sustaining and community-led so that they meet your local needs. For further details on the networks and the areas they cover please see www.keepscotlandbeautiful.org/ccfregionalpeertopeernetworks

 

Climate Justice with CEMVO – Edinburgh – Tuesday 6th October 2015

Eventbrite link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/climate-justice-with-cemvo-edinburgh-tickets-17418145141

This workshop is run by the Council for Ethnic Minority Voluntary Organisations.  It is open to members, volunteers and staff of community groups who are taking action on climate change.

In a world full of injustices how do we work collectively to ensure a fairer just society for all?  The workshop will explore how climate impacts are contributing to some of the world’s most devastating injustices, what Climate Justice means in Scotland and internationally.  Is climate change  only about environmental impacts and carbon reduction, what about other social dimensions? Through a discursive and interactive day learn how we can, both individually and collectively , work towards creating a just one world.

 

Climate Change: Making it Real with CEMVO – Aberdeen – Tuesday 8th October

Eventbrite link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/climate-change-making-it-real-with-cemvo-aberdeen-tickets-18496353090

Communicating climate change to a unreceptive audience can be difficult and for some even daunting, however if we can understand how our choices have an impact on climate change both here in Scotland and around the world then we start these important discussions. Come and learn some techniques employed successfully to making climate change a real and relevant concept. By the end of the session you will be able to take some practical ideas back to confidently engage your audience.

This workshop is run by the Council for Ethnic Minority Voluntary Organisations.  It is open to members, volunteers and staff of community groups who are taking action on climate change.

 

Ensuring Equality and Diversity in your Project with CEMVO – Stirling Wednesday 28th October

Eventbrite link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ensuring-equality-and-diversity-in-your-project-with-cemvo-stirling-tickets-17418350756

This workshop is run by the Council for Ethnic Minority Voluntary Organisations.  It is open to members, volunteers and staff of community groups who are taking action on climate change.

If you or your project have an interest in working with a diverse community then this workshop will help identify some of the issues and challenges faced by individuals from one of the protected characteristic groups. We will be looking at current legislation and the equalities act to ensure inclusivity but beyond this we will also be focusing on cultural differences, languages, rituals, and meeting needs on a practical level. Working with a diverse group can lead to a wealth of knowledge and create a richer and more rewarding experience for a project.
