Edinburgh workshop: Empowered Communities in the 2020s

Edinburgh workshop: Empowered Communities in the 2020s

24 August (13:00 – 15:30)

August 2017


As part of the Empowered Communities in the 2020s project, we’re asking how communities identify an issue that concerns them, explore approaches to addressing it and take action. The project is being led by IVAR and Local Trust and is funded by the Community Development Foundation (CDF) and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF). The research will inform future work to bring about more empowered communities.  

The workshop

The workshop aims to deepen our understanding of how communities could become more empowered in the 2020s, kindly hosted by Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland.

Date: Thursday 24 August 2017

Time: 13:00 – 15:30

Venue: Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland, Riverside House, 502 Gorgie Road, EH11 3AF

In Scotland, we are keen to explore the current focus on community education and community development learning. This workshop provides an opportunity for those working with communities in Scotland to come together and look at our findings so far, through a Scottish lens.

We will explore:

  • What resonates?

  • What is different and specific?

  • How does the emphasis on community education and learning in Scotland shape the context?

  • What does the future look like for Community Learning and Development in Scotland?

  • What is happening in communities that is exciting, that we can learn from or that might inform policy or practice across Scotland?
