Kerry Riddell from the Conservation Volunteers sends through the following information about a community mentors workshops coming up in November:
The Conservation Volunteers Community Mentors Programme is developing a network of Community Mentors throughout Scotland through a series of regional training and support programmes. This highly regarded programme has already trained 200 mentors throughout Scotland to inspire their own communities to take action to protect and improve the environment and work towards more sustainable lifestyles.
The 2 day training workshop provides participants with the skills and knowledge to raise awareness and inspire action in their own communities. Participants also work on developing their own unique skills, producing Action Plans for their communities and learning tools to take forward practical Community Projects to improve the local environment and take action for a more sustainable planet. After the workshop, participants can access support from local TCV Scotland staff and will be provided with resources and access to national and local skills sharing and networking events through our Community Network.
The Perth workshop will be held at The Mountaineering Council of Scotland, The Old Granary, West Mill Street, Perth, PH1 5QP – lunch will be provided. For information about how to book please see the flyer below:
