SSN Member Update: Member Survey and Steering Group

We have published key findings from the SSN Member Survey, and have also made available summary minutes from the latest meeting of the Steering Group.

SSN Member Survey

The 2017 SSN Member Survey forms part of the consultation undertaken by Keep Scotland Beautiful’s Sustainable Scotland Network team to inform the SSN work plan. The survey was completed by 62 members from across the public sector.

Key findings of the survey included:

- The methods of support that members placed the most importance on were: training and capacity building for Public Bodies Climate Change Duties Reporting; keeping up to date on relevant policy developments; and training and development on other specific topics.

- The weekly newsletter, member emails and SSN events were the most valued methods of communications for respondents

- Around 92% were interested in sharing knowledge and experience with peers based in other organisations
