SCCAN Annual Gathering - Edinburgh and online

25 September 2021

Starts: 14:00

Saturday 25 September    2.00 - 5.00    Edinburgh or online

We would like to invite you to join our Community Led Climate Action Gathering on Saturday 25 Sept from 2pm to 5pm. Join notorious author Alastair McIntosh for an inspiring SCCAN Gathering to cap Climate Fringe Week and celebrate the European Day of Sustainable Communities 2021.

Community led initiatives across Scotland will share ways of tackling the personal and political challenges as change-makers seeking a fairer, more just society. This event will be an opportunity to network, to face the climate and ecological emergency with friends, to learn about potential funding opportunities and to explore what's next (NESCCAN has just been awarded £90,000 grant as a pathfinder to the regional climate hubs). 

This is a hybrid meeting. Join in person: St Columba's by the Castle, 14 Johnston Terrace, Edinburgh EH1 2PW  or online via zoom.

This blended event is part of the Climate Fringe Week and the European Day of Sustainable Communities 2021.

Timetable: A mixture of Alastair's inspiration plus local breakout groups. "Meet" people in your area / get involved with local initiatives. All welcome whether or not a member of SCCAN.

Glasgow Govan-based Alastair McIntosh's new book Riders on the Storm explores "... things like community, land and developing wisdom. That’s what my focus is these days, and I use the science as a springboard into that. Its about riding the storm, not in the sense of denying or exaggerating it, but being and doing what each of us can in our own situations to weave the weft to the warp of what the future lays out. My intention is to have participants explore around that."
