As part of your ongoing formulation of the Edinburgh Pact and our enactment activities focusing on the six identified themes from our conversations to date:

  • Shared Purpose – building on shared values and understanding
  • Relationships – building on our collective experiences and valuing difference
  • Community Mobilisation – listening more to and learning more from our communities
  • Agility – responding quickly; shifting power; frontline decision making
  • Radical Transformation – enacting big ideas such as anchor organisations; community wealth and the 20-minute neighbourhood
  • Measuring and evidencing change – fostering a learning culture; continuous improvement; using different approaches to demonstrate impact

We will be hosting an online event on 24 March from 10.00am to 12 noon to begin the discussion about anchor organisations; including addressing key questions about what these could be like in Edinburgh and what we don’t want them to be about.

We hope you can join us on:
