Sustainable Stories: Capturing an Age of Change in Community Archives (CAHG Scotland Conference)


The recently formed Community Archives and Heritage Group Scotland are holding their first networking event, bringing people together from Scotland and beyond to celebrate the richness and diversity of community archives and heritage. The conference provides the opportunity for volunteers, community groups and professionals to learn from one another, share their experience and create future working partnerships.

We have intentionally organised our first event to take place at The Point Community Hub, Govanhill, in Glasgow on Wednesday 10 November 2021, during COP26 (Conference of the Parties 26) and want to take this opportunity to look at community archives and heritage projects and learn how we can engage with critical questions around the environment and sustainability. Community archives and heritage groups have a unique connection with their environment, linking people and places. They are keen to find solutions while also striving to meet international ambitions on climate change and caring for their communities. During the Covid 19 crisis, the resilience of communities has been on full display.

This networking event will inform and inspire us to lead on the challenges of adapting to thrive in this age of change.
