Opportunities in Leith

The Himalayan Centre for Arts & Culture in Leith, is looking for a special team of Community Champions to develop the Leith Community Climate Change Project over the coming months.

The initiative will run from April 2014 to February 2015 and involves a range of activity:

– a schedule of creative and environmentally themed workshops will run from the Centre

– the team will support households in Leith to reduce their energy consumption and increase food composting

– outdoor excursions will be organised for community members

The Community Champions

The Champions will receive bespoke training to develop skills relevant for this project, including an option for further training at the end.

Champions spending a certain amount of time with the project will get bikes from the Bike Station, plus a cycling course and cycling equipment for the duration of the initiative.

They will get ongoing support from the centre and the opportunity to go on Scottish based trips to connect with similar projects.

If this sounds like an opportunity you would like to get involved with, please email harriet@himalayancentre.org. 07949740030
