Award-winning social enterprise Scarf, in partnership with Aberdeenshire Council is hosting a series of Community Resilience Workshops in locations which are most vulnerable to adverse impacts of weather events brought on by climate change. The aim is to create a long term resilience plan for these communities through facilitated conversation and knowledge sharing. We would ask that you share these with your local networks to encourage as many people as possibly to participate. These workshops have been made possible with LEADER funding, LEADER is a bottom-up method of delivering support to communities for rural development. Please note, participants should be able to attend all 3 workshops in their area.
The main aims of the workshops are to facilitate conversations within communities to enhance resilience to climate change. Objectives of the workshops will be to:
Improve Understanding within the community of climate disadvantage
Improve energy efficiency, with regards to behaviour change, services, products and funding available to reduce costs and emissions.
Climate change adaption – how could the impacts of climate change affect the people, places, services and priorities that matter most to the community
Community Resilience development plan – such as food growing,community-owned energy, emergency preparedness in extreme weather events – identify funding streams to support these opportunities.
*As the workshops tie together, you must be available to attend all three sessions – you only have to register to attend the first session to be signed up for all three.
** Individuals who live or work in the St Cyrus area are welcome to take part in the Inverbervie workshops.
