#GoPlaces

How innovative communities are shaping local development

#GoPlaces - a community voice

Our #GoPlaces campaign is all about sharing the latest activity and thinking in community-led development.

We want to bring together latest information, share innovative ideas, showcase examples of real-time projects, link you to organisations which can help you, and explore a range of topics relevant to communities. Topics include: income generation, assets and enterprises, community energy, net zero, Gaelic, funding, housing, tourism, crofting, culture and heritage. 

The focus is on Scotland, and we'll include UK and international content where it's relevant.

Get in touch if you have a story to tell. You can also take part by sharing information on social media channels tagged with #GoPlaces.
