The Spring Gathering and 2016 AGM of Scottish Communities Climate Action Network will take place on 12 May at Salutation Hotel in Perth. 9:30 for 10 am to 2:30pm, including lunch.
(This is in place of the postponed 6th of April event. Thanks for bearing with us!)
Following the AGM, we will be focussed on the latest draft of our three-year strategy, and particularly on the objective of ensuring the physical and psychological wellbeing of individuals who are involved with the demanding work of community-led climate action.
We will be exploring the question of how we can do better at providing each other with mutual support, for example, through buddy systems, coaching circles and mentoring. The afternoon will be an opportunity to participate in and experience one of a range of group coaching activities, including coaching circles, case clinics, action learning sets –and anything else that you would like to share. The intention is for all of us to leave with some new personal support in place.
The AGM is particularly important this year as we will be considering a resolution to dissolve our current unincorporated association and invite our member organisations to join the Scottish Communities CAN Community Interest Company.
The lunch and morning workshop are free for representatives of member organisations.
Here is an outline for the morning.
