The Strengthening Communities Conference Scotland brings together people who are at the heart of community-led development. We held the inaugural event in September 2017 and our second conference took place at the end of May at the MacDonald Aviemore Resort.
We built on our previous conference, which celebrated the people and stories behind 20 years of community asset ownership in Scotland. We designed this year's agenda according to your feedback.
It was a fantastic opportunity for community groups from urban and rural Scotland, public agencies and policy makers to discuss plans and ideas.
There was more time to learn from each other, and share experiences on the issues that matter to you. We're planning a bigger marketplace where you can get the latest advice and support.
Hot topics included: approaches to community development; owning community assets; delivering community services; financing, sustainability and growth; culture and heritage.
