Enhancing local collaboration among green groups – seeking invitations to host a free workshop in your area.


Calling all local low carbon, sustainability, and environmentally-focused groups from Westray to Melrose!

There are literally hundreds of you across Scotland doing fantastic things to lower carbon footprints, increase sustainable options locally, and do your part to mitigate climate change. But far too often our groups work independently even though we may exist in close proximity to other groups. In an effort to forge new local collaborations across a whole range of groups – whether transition towns, zero waste, permaculture, eco-congregations, development trusts, or community gardens – a group of activist-researchers from the University of Edinburgh, in collaboration with the Scottish Community Alliance, will be hosting free all-inclusive “finding common ground” workshops this Spring.

We’ll do all the work planning and even reach out to other groups in your area, but are first looking for invitations from local groups that have a desire to forge new collaborative partnerships with other groups in their local area. Anyone is eligible, just write via email to express your interest to Jeremy Kidwell (j.kidwell@bham.ac.uk).
