Back to the Future?

Back to the Future? is the title of the SCDN annual conference and AGM which will be held on Thursday 29th August 2013, in the City Halls, Glasgow.

Roots, Realities and Responses, is the theme of this event from Scottish Community Development Network.

Communities and the people who support them are facing an unprecedented level of change: on the one hand, increasing recognition in policy that community empowerment is key to achieving outcomes for people; and on the other hand, communities are facing cuts in state beneAits, and public services, in particular to community development.

The event is for people working to develop strong communities, whether paid or unpaid.  A number of speakers will bring their unique perspectives to the theme. This
includes looking back at the roots of community development, to inform our perspective on current realities, and shape our responses to empowering communities for the future. More about the programmeSpeakers will include Andy Milne, Chief Executive of Scottish Urban Regeneration Forum (SURF);  Frances Allan from Letham Climate Challenge and other community groups; the CLD Standards Council: and more to be announced.
