Leith Conference

  • This event has passed.

The Leith Conference was designed to bring local people, organisations and businesses together to jointly identify key issues affecting life for better and worse in Leith and to agree priorities for future action.

Please see the attached Delegate Invitation.

Alongside the attached Conference Schedule.

The event was about getting our voices heard but also about learning and sharing examples of best practice. Over the weekend we heard from a number of people involved in successful community-led development in Leith, Edinburgh and elsewhere in Scotland.

Inspiring us on Saturday, Gemma Neville and Jane Jones shared thoughts on what thinking local can do, and on Sunday we were joined by two seasoned community campaigners Lesley Riddoch and Linda Somerville.

Special thanks to our young facilitators from Leith Academy and the Citadel Youth Center.

Also to the Leith Depot and World Kitchen in Leith  for equally inspirational food.
