Image credit: Water of leith Conservation Trust (image depicts the path running alongside the river)

The Water of Leith Conservation Trust, who help look after the river from the Pentlands to the Leith Shore, are asking people who use the strip of land next to the Water Leith (formally known as Coalie Park) what it should be used for.

Take their 4 minute survey if you want more bins, lighting, a playpark, skatepark or a nature reserve on the site.

Edinburgh Talks Climate

Edinburgh Talks Climate aims to ensure people have information which allows them to make more sustainable choices and encourages to do so.

The site has weekly discussion themes which aim to help people find tips, share ideas, inspire others, and take local action on subjects around food, travel, energy, sustainable living and plants and wildlife.

In the latest Edinburgh Talks Climate podcast, Biodiversity Officer Susan Falkner and biodiversity student Ben Murphy talk about how they connect with nature whilst living in a city, and how lockdown has given them a whole new appreciation for the natural world around them.

Edinburgh’s parks and greenspaces are key to helping lower human impact on the world around us, as well as encouraging people to live more sustainably. ETC wants to know how people think they should be used to help the city reach its net-zero target and how can Edinburgh make parks and greenspaces more sustainable and environmentally friendly? ETC is inviting people to join in the conversation on Edinburgh Talks Climate.

Environmental and climate events

There are currently many opportunities to get involved in environmental and climate-change activities. Check out some or all of these posts on Leith Central, Leith Harbour & Newhaven and New Town & Broughton CCs’ websites

And while you’re doing that, why not check out what else CCs in central and north-east Edinburgh are doing for their communities?

Pilrig residents campaign for community garden

A group of residents in Pilrig have started a petition to convert the now-closed Bowling Green behind Rosslyn Crescent into a community garden. The site is currently owned by Lothian Buses.

We are currently unable to take a firm position on this until our next consituted meeting, but residents can learn more about it on EdinburghLive and read the petition itself on 38Degrees.
