Join a diverse group of invitees from all our public bodies to consider how citizens can contribute to the ambitions set out in the Scottish Energy Strategy, forthcoming Climate Change Action Plan due February, Transforming Planning legislation, draft Fuel Poverty Strategy, and the Programme for Government 2017-2018 commitment to “establish a Just Transition Commission to advise Scottish Ministers on adjusting to a more resource-efficient and sustainable economic model in a fair way which will help to tackle inequality and poverty, and promote a fair and inclusive jobs market”.

How can the headlong dash for more development, more inhabitants and more visitors take into account the need for significantly reducing our carbon – and our ecological – footprint? The only way to do this is by Pulling Together … by establishing a common understanding of the challenges and the opportunities. Join us in exploring this challenge!

These are Fire Starter Festival events 29 Jan – 9 Feb. Dozens of collaborative learning events, illuminating creative, disruptive and innovative ways in which we can all transform ourselves, our organisations and the wider system.

The First Minister seeks to empowering individuals and communities to become involved in designing public services. People across Scotland are lighting small fires exploring genuine, participatory methods of engagement, creating innovative and transformative changes.

The Fire Starter Festival shares these fires of change, and deepens our knowledge and skills in transformation. It allows people from all aspects of public service to share innovative and creative ways that are making a difference to Scotland.
