    Hello everyone, just a short message to confirm the arrangements for the Community Resilience Conference which we are co-hosting with Aberdeen City colleagues on Monday 2 October 2023. The conference will be held at the Beach Ballroom, Aberdeen and will run from 0930 hours to 1500 hours.

    The conference is free to attend and we've arranged the attendance of some of our key partners from Police Scotland, Scottish Fire & Rescue Service, Scottish Ambulance Service, SEPA, SSEN, Scottish Flood Forum and others. We are pleased to have speakers from two of our own Community Groups who will share some of their experiences of Community Resilience.

    We are just waiting for Aberdeen City colleagues to finalise the arrangements following which a link to register will be shared. In the first instance we will look to restrict attendance to two per group but we may be able to increase that nearer the conference.

    Apologies for the lateness of the conference invite. We hope to have that soon!

    Any questions get in touch.

    We've recently been in touch with Meredith Diiola who is a masters student at Aberdeen University in the Department of Geography and Environment, studying MSc Sustainability Transitions. Meredith would like to invite you to participate in the research project “Community Resilience in Rural Aberdeenshire”. The aim of the project is to identify the characteristics of smaller/more remote communities in Aberdeenshire and consider how these characteristics influence resilience to the impacts of climate change, severe weather, and disruption to energy systems. The research project is done in partnership with Foundation Scotland and the Vattenfall Unlock our Future Fund.

    The purpose of this survey is to gauge community members' experiences in relation to community resilience, severe weather, and energy systems. The survey should take around 5-10 minutes.

    If you'd like to take part in the surevy please follow the link below.
