SEC

Scottish Episcopal Church

The Scottish Episcopal Church is a welcoming and inclusive Church that traces its history back to the beginnings of Christianity in Scotland. We are part of the world-wide Anglican Communion - a family of some 70 million Christians in more than 160 countries. The vulnerable and those in need are of particular concern to us. Justice, peace, and the care of the environment are also areas in which our members are actively involved. As a church we support a variety of mission and development projects at home and overseas.

Scottish Seabird Centre

The multi-award winning Scottish Seabird Centre is located in North Berwick, East Lothian, overlooking the wildlife-rich waters of the Firth of Forth. A conservation and education charity, the organisation focuses on encouraging people to appreciate and care for wildlife and the environment. A world-leader in remote wildlife viewing, there are interactive live cameras on the world-famous Bass Rock, Isle of May National Nature Reserve, plus other harbours and islands. Visitors to the five star Discovery Centre can zoom in on the seasonal wildlife action and there are also boat trips, a gift shop and the Seabird Café.

sead

SEAD

SEAD aims to challenge the causes of poverty, social injustice and environmental degradation; and to support the community-based movement for positive social change. We believe that dynamic communities have the power to make positive changes in our society. SEAD’s projects support people to become part of this change. We work with communities in Scotland and in the developing world to exchange ideas, knowledge and inspiration. We provide tools and support to turn this into action.
South Seeds

South Seeds

South Seeds is a community organisation based in Glasgow at Govanhill. We aim to work in partnership with residents and organisations within the local community to help improve the look and feel of the area. Under the climate challenge fund South Seeds are further developing the project to increase energy awareness, support residents and groups to begin composting and helping people learn more about growing food and reducing the amount of waste that we produce.
spokes

Spokes

Spokes is a voluntary organisation with 1200 members, mainly in Edinburgh and Lothian, aiming to promote cycling for everyday transport, and to persuade councils and government to do the same. Activities include lobbying, public meetings, traffic counts, stalls, bike rides, and bike maps. Cycle use has grown from 1% of commuter trips when Spokes began to 7% now. A success has been Edinburgh Council allocating 5% of its transport budget to cycling, rising by 1% annually till the next election. A failure is that the Scottish Government still allocates under 1% of its transport budget to cycling.
Surfers Against Sewage

Surfers Against Sewage

Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) is an environmental charity protecting the UK’s oceans, waves and beaches for all to enjoy safely and sustainably, via community action, campaigning, volunteering, conservation, education and scientific research.

SAS has over 50,000 active supporters across the UK.
Sustrans

Sustrans

Sustrans makes smarter travel choices possible, desirable and inevitable. We're a leading UK charity enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day.

transitionlinlithgow

Transition Linlithgow

Transition Linlithgow formed in 2008 primarily on the issue of Climate Change and the lack of local action. Since then, we have become a registered charity and official members of the global Transition network focusing on efforts which boost community resilience and sustainability. T.L. have created allotments, planted orchards, encouraged home insulation, raised the profile of local food, given energy advice to residents, project managed installation of hundreds of solar panels, assessed the need for improved sustainable travel infrastructure, operated an eco-advice centre and worked with local organisations to raise awareness of climate change, peak oil and economic contraction.
