Ibero Docs

IberoDocs is the first showcase for Ibero-American culture in Scotland, focussed on documentary films by Spanish, Portuguese and Latin- American filmmakers.

Their mission is to celebrate the culture and history of Ibero-American countries through documentary films, by establishing an annual event in Scotland that facilitates the understanding of migration and stimulates cultural and social integration.

The Festival was founded in 2013 by Mar Felices and Xosé Ramón Rivas, with the support of Isabel Moura Mendes.

Greener Melrose

Greener Melrose are an unincorporated, not-for-profit, intentional community whose members are acting individually and collectively to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, lead more sustainable lifestyles and face the challenge of peak oil and climate change.

Transition Stirling

Transition Stirling is an environmental charity focusing on improving awareness of, and providing a positive local response to, climate change in and around Stirling.

It was formed in October 2009 by a group of volunteers for people who want to work on positive solutions to the problems the Stirling area will face in the future due to rising oil prices and climate change.

Glasgow Youth Film Festival

GYFF is one of the most innovative youth film festivals in Europe. Programmed by young people, who are mentored on a year round basis, it presents an outstanding range of international films and creative workshops for young people across the city. The schools programme that precedes GYFF presents a wide selection of films accompanied by resources/introductions to enhance the film screening.

Kinning Park Complex

Kinning Park Complex is an independent multi-use community centre. Run by the community since they had to step in to prevent closure of the facility by the local Council in 1996. We maintain and rent out halls, meeting rooms, studios and office spaces at affordable prices where people and groups can put their ideas into action. We also manage community development projects in the local area.

Free The Change

Free The Change is a bold but simple invitation to help you start or join a small “change-maker” support group where you live, work or play. It’s also a network linking similar groups across Scotland for wider connection, inspiration and skill-sharing. It is curated by Simon Bateson, Founder/Creative Director of Take One Action – in response to thousands of conversations we’ve been part of over the last decade. Conversations about what helps turn both well-meaning concern and mis-spent energy into sustainable, system-changing lives: lived for the common good.

The Shrub Swap and Reuse Hub

The Shrub Swap and Reuse Hub is Edinburgh’s hub for creative reuse. In 4 years it’s grown from an idea into an exciting community hub for sustainable living.

We’ve put loads of love into our space on Guthrie Street and it’s looking and running better than ever, offering hundreds of creative reuse and repair workshops and enabling you to reduce your waste by swapping things you don’t need for things you do.

We’d love to welcome you to our community! Get involved by becoming a member from just £12 per year, sign up for our newsletter and check out our volunteering opportunities.
