A Rocha

A Rocha

A Rocha UK is a Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world, both as a response to the biblical mandate to care for the earth, and as a demonstration of the Christian hope for God’s world. They do this through practical involvement in nature conservation projects and ecological research, by campaigning on biodiversity issues, and by engaging with churches, schools, communities and individuals.
baldernockcc

Baldernock Community Council

We are a small parish of around 280 households 7 miles north of Glasgow. Our closest town is Milngavie and we are a largely dispersed rural community but include the villages of Bardowie and Balmore. We have a thriving playgroup and primary school, a church and we are home to the Balmore Trust, a charity. We were lucky enough to secure Climate Challenge Funding and ran a project which ended in March 2011. We carried out energy surveys and held awareness-raising events and think there has been a lasting positive effect. We were the first Community Council to join SCCS.

The Iona Community, is an ecumenical Christian community. Its members follows a five-fold rule, including 'acting in solidarity with victims of environmental injustice and supporting political and structural change to reduce our over-consumption of resources'. Programmes at our centres, (Abbey and MacLeod Centre on Iona and Camas on Mull) often focus on environmental and climate change issues. Camas is based on a simple lifestyle and environmental sustainability. It is powered by wind turbine and solar panels and has its own organic garden. On the mainland, we focus on these issues too in our work with young people.

One World Week

One World Week offers opportunities for people and organisations to come together at local events to explore how they can work together to build a more just, peaceful and sustainable world. OWW, working with partner organisations, mobilises local volunteers to organise events where people of diverse backgrounds can: acknowledge our interdependence; raise awareness of global inequalities and injustice and inspire action to increase equality, justice and sustainability, locally and globally. One World Week is around United Nations Day (24 October) but activity can take place at any time. OWW’s website offers opportunities to participate in SCC members’ campaigns.
Peopleriver

Peopleriver

Peopleriver works to engage more and more people - helping them take action on the campaigns and causes that they care about, by spreading the word and highlighting opportunities – locally, nationally and internationally. They build stronger relationships between organisations and their supporters by placing an emphasis on the many different ways in which people can participate, rather then just focusing on monetary donations. Together we are a real force for good.
sead

SEAD

SEAD aims to challenge the causes of poverty, social injustice and environmental degradation; and to support the community-based movement for positive social change. We believe that dynamic communities have the power to make positive changes in our society. SEAD’s projects support people to become part of this change. We work with communities in Scotland and in the developing world to exchange ideas, knowledge and inspiration. We provide tools and support to turn this into action.
spokes

Spokes

Spokes is a voluntary organisation with 1200 members, mainly in Edinburgh and Lothian, aiming to promote cycling for everyday transport, and to persuade councils and government to do the same. Activities include lobbying, public meetings, traffic counts, stalls, bike rides, and bike maps. Cycle use has grown from 1% of commuter trips when Spokes began to 7% now. A success has been Edinburgh Council allocating 5% of its transport budget to cycling, rising by 1% annually till the next election. A failure is that the Scottish Government still allocates under 1% of its transport budget to cycling.
