One Big Picnic One Big Community is a free event for the people by the people from 12-4pm on Sunday 3 September in George Square.

The aim of the event is to bring people together by creating a space for sharing food and a wee blether, sitting next to each other, showing understanding to differences regardless of background, cultural, religious, sexual orientation, social or educational status, homelessness or wealth. Highlighting Glasgow is indeed a city of caring people – people make Glasgow!

The event brings together community projects which prepare and serve free meals/provide food parcels on a regular basis  to those in need, such as the elderly, homeless and destitute. We believe that everyone has the right to good accessible food and should be treated fairly and with dignity. Therefore we will be serving wonderful dishes from around the world to all.

Welcome to the fourth year of Glasgow Wildfest which will run from Friday 1 to Saturday 30 September 2017 across the City. Glasgow Wildfest is a whole month of events celebrating Glasgow’s greenspaces and the many organisations and groups working tirelessly to help wildlife and improve their local parks and gardens for everyone to enjoy.

So why not join in with events happening throughout September and meet some of the people doing incredible things to help protect Glasgow’s wildlife, and make the city a greener place for everyone to enjoy. This year, there are 32 events for you to choose from. Each weekend will see the focus switch to a different part of Glasgow, celebrating both well-known and hidden greenspaces within those areas.

Highlights for the festival this year include the Wild Day Out in Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens (Sat 2 Sept), which will be the biggest recording event there in 20 years! Please do join in if you can, as they need as many citizen scientists as possible on the day to help them uncover all the wildlife.  As well as the grand opening of a newly developed garden and community hub by Friends of Springburn Park (Sat 23 Sept) and a picnic concert at the Hidden Gardens with the accompaniment of live chamber music (Sat 16 Sept).

More details can be found in the leaflet Wildfest 2017 and for more information, updates, and late additions please check out www.glasgowwildfest.org, follow #glasgowwildfest on Twitter or email gnahg@rspb.org.uk Accompanied children are welcome at all events

The event will welcome a number of influential speakers and debate the question “Is Scotland ready for such a radical policy?”. The event will consider how such a programme might benefit families and communities supported by the Third Sector and what types of outcomes could be achieved for society as a whole.

Speakers include Head of RSA Scotland, Jamie Cooke, currently supporting Glasgow, Fife and North Ayrshire Councils to consider basic income and Annie Miller from the Citizens Basic Income Network in Scotland, who will launch her book, “A Basic Income Handbook”, at this event. Other key speakers still to be confirmed!
