The Scottish Government is consulting on a set of proposals for a more circular economy in Scotland.  Put simply the Circular Economy is about keeping materials flowing in the economy at as high a value as possible for as long as possible.

Keep Scotland Beautiful are pleased to offer this opportunity for representatives of community organisations that are involved in activities that could contribute to a circular economy – through grassroots reuse and/or repair initiatives and through engagement projects that aim to encourage people away from a ‘throwaway culture’ – to attend a consultation event on the afternoon of the 27th October.


The event will be a chance to hear directly from the Scottish Government about their plans and proposals, and an opportunity to offer a community-focussed response.  Peter Stapleton from the Scottish Government will present an overview and be available to answer questions.  There will then follow a facilitated discussion in order to collect your thoughts and responses on the proposals.  Your input will be collected by the Scottish Government to feed into the consultation process.

Please register your interest today to take advantage of this great opportunity to influence the direction of the Scottish Government on this important issue.
