Learning from previous gatherings
Here we share further learning and experience on tackling climate change from gatherings of the CCF Community over the last four years.
In the last four years over 2,000 representatives from community-led organisations have attended CCF events including the annual CCF Gathering, networking events and training sessions.
Events have seen a wide range of attendees keen to learn and share including CCF grant recipients, local community-led organisations, interested individuals, national organisations, NGO's and the Scottish Government.
We are delighted to share this learning - and celebrate achievements - in the form of recorded content from the CCF Gathering and films from networking events.
The event took place at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh. It provided networking opportunities and the chance for sharing learning from across the CCF Community. One of the highlights of the event was the Climate Heroes session, where we heard inspiring stories of climate action from volunteers at CCF projects.
One of the highlights of the Gathering was speaking with volunteers at CCF projects who had been commended in the new Climate Hero Awards. Find out more about the Climate Heroes here.
Creative Arts and Climate workshop
How can community groups harness the power of art, photography, dance, drama, writing, film and other creative arts to communicate and encourage change? In this recorded workshop session Creative Carbon Scotland share ideas and examples and guide you through a process of thinking about how you could use these tools in your own context.
