The DRCET Board has recently reviewed and update our core operational area. This follows the recent Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland Fifth Electoral Review which saw several changes to Ward boundaries in the city, and in particular in the local area with the creation of the new Victoria Park ward.

Our new revised core operational area covers two complete wards – Ward 13 Garscadden/Scotstounhill and Ward 12 Victoria Park – which in turn covers 7 community council areas – Yoker, Scotstoun and Knightswood in Ward 13 and Whiteinch, Jordanhill, Broomhill and Thornwood in Ward 12. Just over 54,000 people live in this area – approx 9% of the population of Glasgow.

When DRCET was first set up the operational area covered the Dumbarton Road Corridor small area Social Inclusion Partnership which covered Yoker, part of Scotstoun and Whiteinch. Then with the arrival of the Glasgow Community Planning Partnership and the multi-member wards this changed again to take in all of Scotstoun and also Knightswood.

WeeFeet

The Trust has been working with COPE to support local volunteers in researching people’s attitudes to sustainability issues – energy efficiency, recycling, carbon footprint reduction, that kind of thing.  So what the heck does your carbon footprint have to do with mental health?  Well, DRCET and COPE both understand that taking positive action for the environment makes you feel good.  It’s empowering.

The results of our volunteers’ research is here, and what they found was a great willingness to be greener, but a lack of knowledge and understanding about how to go about it.

So, feeling positive and empowered, the volunteers decided to form a new group to take their findings forward and do something about it!  And so WeeFeet has been born – West End Enterprise For Energy Efficiency Today. The group is hatching all kinds of plans to spread the message about reducing carbon footprints, becoming “agents of change” to encourage our communities to make more sustainable choices.   To see the minutes of their last two meetings, have a look here.  The next one is onTuesday the 26th of January at COPE’s office (map here) for 6:30pm.  If you want to get involved, drop us a line in the comments!
