Zero Waste Scotland has produced a guide of ideas to tackle littering that go beyond picking it up. Litter-picking tackles the symptoms of the litter problem without tracing it back to the source. No sooner have you finished tidying up, than the problem rears its ugly head again

This guide will show you how to go further. How to channel the enthusiasm from previous litter picks – inspiring communities to prevent litter in the first place.

From surprising techniques taken from behavioural science, to a targeted messaging toolkit, this guide will help you address Scotland’s litter problem in innovative ways — ways that deliver for the long term.

They’ve included lots of inspirational examples from across the UK and beyond. You’ll find more detailed case studies of selected examples at the end of this guide. Download the guide here: ZWS guide booklet_Beyond_Litter_pick_AW2

The Galvanising Grassroots Guide on ‘How to get a new allotment site’ has just been published and was launched at the recent Annual Scottish Allotments Conference.

The publication contains 7 stories about the different ways that people have acquired a plot and signposts for how to make this happen. The publication can be downloaded from the Scottish Allotments and Gardens Society (SAGS) website. 

There is a great opportunity at the moment to get new sites through the Community Empowerment Act and through the Food Growing Strategy but people need to act for themselves and this Guide will help with the case stories of the different ways this has happened.

There are also hard copies available for people who would benefit from this advice. If you think you would be interested please contact SAGS.

EasyReadThe Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill was introduced to the Scottish Parliament on 11 June 2014, alongside a number of accompanying documents which included a Policy Memorandum. The Government has produced an Easy Read version of the Policy Memorandum to ensure that as many people as possible can understand the Bill.

People can still ask for changes to the Bill while the Scottish Parliament is looking at it. This can be done by writing to the Local Government and Regeneration Committee who will be looking carefully at what is in the Bill. The closing date is Friday 5 September 2014 Comments should be no more than eight pages long in a Word Document. These should be emailed, if possible to: communityempowermentbill@scottish.parliament.uk
