Alyth - Claiming Our Future
Claimed 1
The Alyth Development Trust in Alyth, Perth & Kinross, Scotland have adopted community sustainability as a strategic objective. We are planning a meeting in early April 2020 which will gather together many of the local community groups. We would welcome a speaker who can talk on climate reality and inspire Alyth to play its part in making changes. We will invite ideas from the local community to reduce carbon emissions in Alyth.

There is a core of individuals and local groups in Alyth who are already either actively growing food or engaged in creative repair and reuse, particularly of textiles. For example, in Alyth there is a community orchard, an allotment plot, vegetable beds both at the primary school and at a plot cared for by a youth project plus containers and public spaces maintained by a local group. We know that there is interest in expanding access to both growing areas and to skills and education. For example, the allotment plot is fully in use and has a waiting list and a recent creative mending day was well attended. We are also working with two neighbouring towns to develop a network of safe cycling paths.

We want to build on these to do so much more. There is huge potential in Alyth for community-owned energy, for developing the circular economy and for education on climate change. 

Another issue is that Alyth suffered a flood in July 2015 and narrowly avoided another flood in February during Storm Ciara. 

We would very much like to welcome a speaker who can speak to the reality of climate change and inspire the town to think big!
