SCDN National Conference 2021
Community Development: grassroots activism at the heart of democracy
SCDN's national conference will take place this year on Tuesday 30th November, 10 am - 2 pm, online via Zoom.
This year's conference will explore what we, as practitioners, can do ensure grassroots action is at the heart of local democracy, preventing communities from being left behind. Join us as we discuss how investment in community development can build political capacity and how strong strategic processes form a crucial part of the effectiveness of local democracy.
What are the priorities in our local communities and how in tune are they with the Scottish Government's route map to a fairer Scotland and the policy aspiration of Democratic Renewal?
Having different systems and approaches to local democracy is both commendable and welcomed. This will however require essential investment in communities and the skilled intervention of community development to increase the political capacity of our communities to meaningfully engage in this process.
Join us for what promises to be a thought provoking and inspiring event.
