APPLICATIONS FOR FOOD ON FILM SCREENINGS NOW OPEN
This opportunity from Keep Scotland Beautiful has just opened up for GFAA. If any plotter is interested in taking this forward, please see Stuart in the first instance.
Keep Scotland Beautiful is pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to host a film screening through Food on Film. Thirty successful applicants will receive a funded public screening license for their choice of three films and accompanying support resources.
Interested applicants are invited to create an event around a film screening to inspire conversations and activity exploring and discovering sustainable food. The 30 film screening licenses available through Food on Film are for public screenings, which means they must create an opportunity to build community links. The Sustainable Development Goals are a good starting point to choose a sustainable food theme such as Goal 2 – Zero Hunger or Goal 10 – Reduced Inequalities.
Food on Film is open to community groups, schools, colleges and organisations. There are three films for you to choose from. Your event must be held by 31st March 2016.
Click here for more information and to apply. Applications must be received by 24th December 2015. Successful applicants will be notified by 7th January 2016.
“ARE WE READY?” TRAINING WITH SCOTTISH COMMUNITIES CLIMATE ACTION NETWORK
This Thursday (3rd December) Keep Scotland Beautiful is hosting Scottish Communities Climate Action Network who are running a ‘Are We Ready’ training. Participants will learn how to use a community engagement resource that uses the weather to get people thinking about climate change and community resilience; not only to plan for future extreme weather events and other emergencies but also to get people together to think how to build long-term community resilience as we adapt to life without fossil fuels.
The training is free (SCCAN have received funding from Adaptation Scotland to run the workshops) and available to community organisations. The day will be a ‘train the trainers’ course, so attendees will go away with the tools and knowledge to run activities with their communities.
