Scottish Civic Trust Annual Conference
Celebrating Civic Pride
Linlithgow Burgh Halls, 15 November 2016
The next Scottish Civic Trust annual conference will
showcase and celebrate the work of local civic trusts, amenity
societies and heritage volunteers. The people that make up these
groups work tirelessly to promote and protect local heritage,
places and spaces. The conference will provide them with a platform
to show what they have achieved, explain why they do it and set out
the challenges and difficulties they face.
Along with local groups affiliated to the Scottish Civic Trust
the conference will feature representatives from voluntary
organisations and practitioners behind some of the projects
recognised in the annual Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards and
Scottish Heritage Angel Awards.
Delegates will also hear about the Scottish Government's Place
Standard Tool; Historic Environment Scotland's volunteering
strategy; and design charrettes as a way of turning civic pride
Colin McLean, chair of the Scottish Civic Trust said:
"Civic pride is very much what the Scottish Civic Trust is
about. The work carried out by many of our local
affiliated societies and other voluntary heritage or community
groups is exemplary and inspiring. The conference will
provide a wonderful opportunity to learn first-hand about the
achievements of volunteers as they celebrate, care for and promote
heritage, places and communities."
