Lairg & District Learning Centre to Help Lead Highland-wide Climate Movement to Reduce Waste
Date of post
We are one of eight community groups coming together across the Highlands as part of a new climate movement coordinated by environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful. to help reduce consumption and waste and tackle our throwaway culture.
Funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, the Highland Community Waste Partnership will raise awareness of how unsustainable consumption contributes to climate change, working over three years to address this through a programme of collaborative grassroots activity. It will focus on key issues such as reducing food waste; tackling single use items; and increasing the use of pre-loved, repaired and shared goods.
The partnership will build a movement for more sustainable consumption, supporting communities to reduce their carbon footprints and contributing towards Scotland’s ambitions to create a more circular economy and become a Net Zero nation by 2025.
The Partnership comprises the following groups:
- The Lochaber Environment Group (Fort William)
- Broadford and Strath Community Company (Isle of Skye)
- Ullapool Community Trust
- Thurso Community Development Trust
- Lairg & District Learning Centre
- Transition Black Isle
- The Highland Good Food Partnership (Highland-wide)
- Velocity Café and Bicycle Workshop (Inverness)
