Do you want to build links with other environmental groups across Scotland?
LINK is launching a trial of a matchmaking service in a bid to help local groups strengthen our common goal of a more environmentally sustainable society. You can register to join ‘LINK Local’ here – at www.scotlink.org/local/register.
LINK Local is an online Scottish “address book” for local groups with interests in the environment. LINK Local aims to link up campaigning and local action groups concerned with a whole range of environmental topics from localising food production, conserving wildlife, cleaning and greening our energy and transport systems and respecting our landscapes to improving the health of our seas and transitioning to low-carbon living. These issues are linked by people across Scotland striving for a more sustainable approach to how we live in balance with our environment.
How does my group ‘join’ in order to test this trial?
It’s simple. It’s FREE. It takes a few minutes to complete the online form. The rest is up to you and how you choose to build links with other organisations….
The long-term plan?
This trial will run for a 12- 18 months, funded by Scottish Environment LINK. It will gauge the level of interest and need across the country with the intention of providing a free service to allies in Scotland’s communities who are involved in local action for the environment.
At the end of the trial (early 2018) LINK will review with participating LINKLocalGroups how useful the service is; if there is a clear value in this type of environmental network-building, we would seek to continue LINK Local for the future.
