Purpose

  • Meet to build capacity and resilience in Edinburgh communities.

  • Raise awareness of the Edinburgh Sustainable Development Partnership, the scope of the Sustainable Energy Action Plan and the Edible Edinburgh Food Charter.
  • Promote engagement by all stakeholders in the city, whether established businesses, new starts or small community groups.
