Are you inspired to make a positive difference in your community but don’t know where to start? Do you spend your time trying out interesting ideas, from small and simple to big and bold, that aim to improve the happiness and wellbeing in your area?

Eden Project Communities (the team behind The Big Lunch and The Big Walk) is holding a series of meet-ups across Scotland this September with the aim of bringing people together who want to make a positive difference in their local community.

These events are open to anyone involved in a community project or individuals that would like to find out more about how they could get involved. So whether you have lots of experience or are just starting your journey, you’re warmly invited to sign up and use this opportunity to discuss new ideas, share your skills and meet other people who are also active in your local area.

At these events you will also have the chance to learn more about The Big Lunch annual campaign, contribute to shaping the development of a network/hub in your area, find out about other opportunities to keep connected and leave with new contacts to follow up locally.
