Greener Kirkcaldy's Annual Gathering and AGM 2018
When: 10am - 1.30pm, Saturday 18 August 2018 Where: Adam Smith Theatre, Bennochy Road, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1ET This event is being organised by Greener Kirkcaldy
Greener Kirkcaldy, along with other local, national, and global alliances, have been highlighting how we think about waste. Even household names now challenge us to change how we view items that have no real use or function. However, that's not the end of the story for our waste.
In Kirkcaldy, they've been growing an enthusiastic community of people who are keen to repair, reuse and create something new from things we no longer need.
Join us at our Annual Gathering to explore how communities, for example, Zero Waste Towns in Scotland are working together to make waste useful by turning rubbish into treasures.
They're delighted to welcome their guest speakers,:
Zero Waste Scotland talking about towns that have tried different approaches to inspire people to reduce, re-use and repair - making leftover bread into beer and beer back into bread, redistributing food waste and repurposing items in the community like furniture, clothes and more.
Recycle Reeni Kennedy-Boyle from Fyne Futures Ltd - an island based social enterprise on Bute that helps residents, businesses, and organisations manage waste through a creative programme of activities.
Fyne Futures Ltd was funded by Zero Waste Scotland to pilot different approaches that encouraged the community on Bute to move towards a zero waste approach to life. Reeni will tell us about what they did and how, and what they continue to do towards a Zero Carbon Bute.
The AGM will take place during the Gathering and will be followed by a local and seasonal lunch. The Re-use and Repair Festival will be an activity-filled afternoon showcasing how you can repair and re-use many personal and household items.
