Coming Yet - Reclaiming Our Communities Futures
Clyde Community Hall
Glasgow United Kingdom
Share this event:

In these uncertain times, too often our destinies are decided by distant power structures over which we have no say.

The Plan de Vida or Life Plan is an exceptional approach for communities to re-envision and take control of their futures, first developed by the Misak indigenous people in the Colombian Cauca and later adopted by hundreds of indigenous peoples across South America.

This November we invite you to to take part in a unique two-day event joining Misak leader Jeremias Tunubala, The GalGael Trust and LifeMosaic in Govan, Glasgow. What can we learn from the Plan de Vida? What is already happening in Scotland and how can we build on these experiences and opportunities? Given the interest surrounding the Community Empowerment Act, is there potential to go beyond asset transfer alone, to community ownership of our futures? How can we move from engagement and consultation to community-led visioning and planning? How can young people play more of a role, rooted in their communities story? How can Scottish communities determine their own destinies?

We are particularly inviting community members and practitioners engaged in community-led approaches, to share our experiences and develop our practice. We also want to particularly invite young people who are active in their communities.

DATES: Thursday Nov.17th and Friday 18th 2016
