Edinburgh Branch Meeting @ Augustine United Church
Jul 25 @ 18:45 – 21:30

This meeting is open to members and non-members, and is in two parts:

1. New Members event. 18:45 – 20:00. This is to welcome new members (or prospective members), but all are invited. Discover how the party works and how to get involved; meet some of our elected representatives, and chat with members from your local team. We will also hear reports from our Green councillors and MSPs.
We hope you’ll stay on for the second part of tonight’s event (below).

2. Edinburgh’s
Food Strategy. 20:00 – 21:30.
Hear from guest speakers about their work to change the way that we think about, produce and consume our food. We will be joined by:

  • Nourish Scotland to talk about their work in the world of food policy (Stephanie Mander – Policy and Campaigns Officer);
  • SHRUB Coop, whose food sharing hub is reducing local food waste (Sydney Chandler – Food Sharing Hub Coordinator);
  • The Grove Community Garden, Fountainbridge: Wendy Lord on local food growing initiatives in the city.

Following short talks and a Q&A, we will discuss what this means for Edinburgh and what Greens should be campaigning for in the city.

In the spirit of food sharing and waste reducing, we will be running a food bring and swap – bring your garden produce, home baking or preserves and swap for something else. Don’t worry if you have nothing to swap – donations to the Scottish Greens are also accepted!


Doors open 18:30. If you would like to join the meeting remotely via Skype, please email comms.edin@scottishgreens.org.uk for the Skype link in advance.

Reframing Independence: workshop for activists @ Nelson Hall
Jul 28 @ 12:30 – 16:30

Reframing is a technique which enables you to get your point across to another person without reinforcing their existing preconceptions.

Facts alone do not change people’s opinions – conversely, in many cases, presenting clear facts actually reinforces misconceptions.

This workshop is aimed at activists who wish to reassure the undecided on the merits of Scottish independence. The skills learned are applicable to any issue and are useful in helping out with stalls, social media debating, canvassing etc.

Sessions include reframing essentials, communication techniques and participant action plans.

The event will be run by Bill Mills who has worked closely for several years with Bill Dale who has been developing a reframing programme for the Yes movement based on the work of cognitive scientist George Lakoff.

Open to Scottish Green Party members and supporters. Numbers are limited, so please email seeg@scottishgreens.org.uk to secure your place.

This event is organised by South East Edinburgh Greens.
