Community Climate Action Network SKILLSHARE

  • Transition Edinburgh and Scottish Communities Climate Action Network pin St Leonard's Land 3.24 Moray House School of Education Holyrood Road, EH8 8AQ (map)

Facing a Climate Emergency we cannot rely on politicians or business to sort it: We have potential to make changes ourselves!
SCCAN invite you to a Skillshare for community-led initiatives: co-creating new strategies for a deeper, quicker transition to a Low Carbon, Resilient, Biodiverse Scotland.
9.30 registration for 10am - 5pm Saturday 3 March 2019
Rm 3.24, St Leonard's Land, Holyrood Rd, Edinburgh EH8 8AQ.
Please book: https://sccan2mar.eventbrite.co.uk and Share.
The morning gathering provides an opportunity for Telling Our Stories ... of innovation by skillful citizen groups using new strategies based on best practices globally! Using Open Space, we'll identify effective models for rapid change-making that people want to hear more about. These will form the topics for small-group think-and-do workshops after lunch.
The event is for all those eager to take action - from seasoned campaigners and activists to those newly engaged in Extinction Rebellion and Earth Strike. Share skills and make new contacts and lasting friendships.
The afternoon will be capped off by Tina Clarke, Transition Trainer, sharing her experience of supporting grassroots initiatives in the United States, Canada and Europe.
On Sunday Transition Scotland offer a fuller Transition Network Training session where Tina will unpack a great bag of tools gathered over ten years for thriving Carbon Neutral Communities.
