Scottish Communities Climate Action Network

September 2022  Latest SCCAN newsletter

SCCAN training

The newsletter includes information about training for facilitators of tupperware-party-like 'climate conversations' and also of more in-depth sessions for people who 'want to know more about the causes and impacts of climate change and ecological degradation and decline as well as what actions they can take and how much of a difference these will make'.  

Skye Climate Action has provided a use ful summary of the training with booking links (below), and you can find more detailed information from SCCAN here.

 ‘Climate for Change’ conversation  - Monday 26th September  6:00pm - 8:00pm.  The concept of SCCAN’s ‘Climate for Change’ conversations for newcomers is a bit like a Tupperware party, where - instead of being sold plastic boxes - an idea is communicated: how we can take action on climate change. Participants draw on concerns that all have in the session - and allow space to address them and to let them grow into action.

Climate Knowledge into Action: Facilitators Training -  4th & 5th and 11th & 12th October, 9:30 am - 1:30 pm.  This training runs over four sessions. You must attend all to become a certified facilitator. The accredited Knowledge in Action facilitator’s course will equip you with skills and knowledge to cascade down to your community group. 12 spaces max.


March 2021   Meeting report

This was a first, tentative exploration of how our network can individually and collectively reach out to engage with those not often heard and so achieve greater diversity & inclusion. 22 people from all over Scotland participated, of the 32 who registered.

We reflected on the links between climate change and climate justice. Education has a key role to play so that people know the colonial history behind it and can make decisions based on this. If we could change this then there could be a paradigm shift in responses to climate change in Scotland.

The focus was on finding who we need to reach out to; and ways in which we can do this to increase widespread participation in society.
