This year, the annual Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) Conference is focusing on how community energy can be a key player in the renewable energy industry moving forward.
Through innovative financing, cutting-edge technologies and new partnerships, we will be exploring the potential of community energy, and how as an industry we can collaborate to achieve.
This weekend is UK Divestment Day, and to mark it people in Edinburgh are coming together for a mass photo to show our support for a fossil free future.
After the Paris climate deal, getting the solutions we need means building on our momentum and bringing the pressure home. It means building our power, demanding just climate solutions and breaking our ties with the fossil industry once and for all.
This training day is an opportunity for anyone who wants to campaign for cycling, walking and more liveable towns and cities to meet, share ideas and learn about how we can work together to achieve the transformation that we want.
It is also a chance to pick up effective tools and skills - both for the coming election or for the longer term.
