LOW CARBON SCOTLAND – BUILDING THE VISION FROM THE BOTTOM UP

Book your place now for the Scottish Communities Climate Action Network’s second annual gathering and AGM on Monday, 24th of February 2014 from 09:00 to 17:00 (GMT).

This event is an opportunity for community groups and supporting organisations, to share learning and experience, make useful contacts, and be inspired.

This year we’ll visit the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation in central Edinburgh. We’ll hear from speakers including Lesley Riddoch, Rob Hopkins, and – importantly – each other.

There will be workshops to learn how other communities are finding ways to tackle climate change locally, and form a vision of a community-led low-carbon Scotland.

The business of the AGM is to nominate and confirm Steering Group members to take forward work to support and enable community action. Could that be you?

Eventbrite registration and programme are available here.

Feedback from last year’s event:

The event was really well organised; well thought out structure to day, high standard of leadership, gently but effectively keeping delegates focused within a framework which afforded plenty of opportunity to learn from others/ develop useful contacts. I struggle to suggest improvements … just maintain this high standard please”

It felt like a mini CCF gathering, but that’s not a bad thing as there are few opportunities to meet a range of people from other projects to share ideas and ask questions. Good to hear more about the network. Am glad I attended.”

I liked the chances to talk to other groups and find out what they were doing. I thought it was good that the workshops encouraged this participation, rather than just being told information about a topic.”

Wonderful to meet so many different people from different projects who in reality are all linked in their efforts to reduce carbon.”
