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.

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."

The monthly indoor market in North Kessock Hall re-opens on Saturday 25 September, and the weekly outdoor market will continue as usual.

For the time being refreshments will not be available at the indoor market.
North Kessock Market is run by Transition Black Isle in association with Friends of the Earth Inverness and Ross.
It takes place at the North Kessock Village Hall on the last Saturday of each month between 10 am and 12.30.
Lovely, local fresh vegetables and other produce and local crafts – much better than supermarket shopping!
