So you want to be a Councillor? Hosted by the Green Councillor Group @ Edinburgh Council Chambers
Nov 21 @ 19:00 – 21:00

So you want to be a councillor? What are the realities of working as an elected member of the City of Edinburgh Council?

This public event offers an insight into the role of councillor, from committee work to helping constituents. It should be of special interest to anyone considering standing in local elections, as well as those wanting a better understanding of the demanding but rewarding role of councillor.

What to expect:

  • A tour of the City Chambers
  • How the Council is structured and operates
  • Join a mock council meeting to debate issues of the day.

Registration:
This is a free event, but registration is required. Please reserve your place via eventbrite.

Accessibility:
This event is fully accessible, but is located in an old building with lifts. Please email in advance events.edin@scottishgreens.org.uk if you might need any support with getting around or participating, so that we can arrange a ‘buddy’.

Do you know about The Access To Elected Office Fund, which is delivered by Inclusion Scotland and supported by the Scottish Government?

This fund offers financial assistance to disabled people running for Local Authority and Scottish Parliament seats. See https://inclusionscotland.org/what-we-do/employability-and-civic-participation/access-to-politics/aeofs/

Nov 29 @ 19:30 – 22:30

Geeks Assemble!

So you like comic books, sci-fi and fantasy – or just love a really good quiz with Green friends? We have just the social event for you!


Whether you’re a slayerette, time traveller or a girly swot, there’ll be a round for you in this quiz. Don your best costume, slogan tee, or just your regular garb (so nobody will know you’re really a superhero…), find a team, and get geeky.

Featuring a raffle, cash bar, refreshments and an awesome soundtrack, join Edinburgh Greens to celebrate the drawing to a close of 2019!

This is open to non-members too, so invite your green-curious friends!

Accessibility:

  • The main entrance to the building is up four steps with a handrail. Step-free access is available via a door to the right of the building (please ring the bell for attention). A disabled toilet is available at this level.
  • The venue has a hearing loop which can be used during the quiz (please request at the registration desk).
  • If you require any communication support which would make the event more accessible for you, please contact us in advance: events.edin@scottishgreens.org.uk
