Feeling hopeless in the face of the gloomy headlines?
This is the Festival for you.
War has scarred the 21st Century and the world is careering towards an even more precarious position. The rising potential for nuclear calamity fuses with another existential threat: human-induced catastrophic climate change and ecocide.
These threaten the very habitat we rely on.
Instead of diverting efforts towards the green infrastructure required to sustain all life, yet more resources are thrown into the war machine. Today’s nuclear bombs are many times more destructive than those dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
They represent the end of all species and life itself.
All of the nuclear states including India and China are developing new weapons while the non-nuclear powers create new pressure towards disarmament through the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
The movement for nuclear disarmament is needed now more than at any time since the height of the Cold War. In Scotland, we have a special responsibility to rise to that challenge.
Removal of nuclear warheads from Faslane and Coulport would dismantle the British nuclear weapons system and prove that nuclear states can be disarmed. The world is watching.
The “Festival For Survival” will bring together international speakers, campaigners, creative artists and activists.
Let’s discuss how we can build a movement for nuclear disarmament, peace, the environment, and climate justice.
A mix of lectures, plenaries, workshops and cultural exhibits will bring hundreds of people together to discuss how we can make another world possible.
One Planet. Twin Threats.
Scotland Must Act.

SAVE THE DATE for our 2023 Annual Conference – Wednesday 15 November 2023.
Circular Communities Scotland is delighted to invite our members, supporter members, and those involved in the circular third sector in Scotland to our 2023 Annual Conference, Uniting for a Circular Scotland.
This year, we’re calling for unification across all social, political, and economic divides to create a more circular economy in Scotland.
As the climate crisis deepens and the cost of living continues to rise, it’s more important than ever that we come together to make meaningful and impactful change.
We’ll be celebrating amazing examples of partnership working that show the strength and power that comes with cooperating for a greater cause, and as always, showcasing our members’ incredible work in Scotland’s circular third sector.
Circular Communities Scotland members collaborate in a variety of amazing ways, whilst each providing environmental and social benefits to their own communities across Scotland. Together, they contribute to our circular economy, and make tangible differences to people’s lives, challenging social issues like homelessness, poverty and inequality.
Following the hugely successful conference last year, this will be another in person conference hosted at the Radisson BLU in Glasgow in their completely refurbished events suit on the first floor. This will be an amazing opportunity for our members and the sector to come together in one space, to connect with one another and network.
We’re thrilled to announce we’ll welcome back our host, Dr Heather Reid OBE, and as always we’ll have an exciting line up of industry speakers and expert keynotes.
SAVE THE DATE for our 2023 Annual Conference – Wednesday 15 November 2023.
Watch this space for updates on the agenda for the day and booking information.
The Circular Communities Scotland team can’t wait to welcome you to the Radisson BLU later this year.

Get your popcorn ready, and book a place at our FREE online screening and discussion of Everyday Rebellion, this weekend, from the comfort of your own home.
Everyday Rebellion is a moving and playful film celebrating the triumph of creativity over repression. Filmed in locations including London, Ukraine, Syria, the USA, Iran, and Spain, the award-winning documentary hails the revolutionary spirit of peaceful protest, featuring clowns, musicians, ping pong players, and more, and reminding us that power must always give way to humanity.
Guided by evidence that non-violence is twice as effective as violence in creating change, millions of people are dropping their fists and adopting peaceful tactics to resist blind power: everywhere from boardrooms to market squares. Everyday Rebellion vividly demonstrates that the future of civil disobedience has never looked brighter.
The aim of Humanist Society Scotland’s Take One Action Film Club is to empower our community by screening a specially curated programme of world-changing films, and hosting follow-on discussions and activities to increase creative, impactful action for a fairer and more sustainable world.

As part of our Food & Climate Action Project, we are running a series of Food & Climate film clubs this winter! Join us for our first screening of the season.
The film will start at 18.30, please arrive and be seated before this time. Feel free to bring your own food and drink.
Stay after the film for a discussion over a delicious, vegan meal!
There will be a variety of veg seeds from Vital Seeds to swap with you… so bring your own and swap with us.
In Our Hands explores a quiet revolution that is transforming the way our food is produced and distributed. Our current industrial food system is a vast and wheezing giant that is only upheld by a stilted subsidy regime that pays out to landowners and leaves many farmers by the wayside.
But from the hedge-rows and by-roads, the fields and furrows can now be heard the stirring of change! Stories from the global South have inspired farmers and food workers in our snug little island, with the idea of food sovereignty and a global movement to take back control of the food system.
From the grazier reviving the art of pasture, to the grower erecting a poly-tunnel in the heart of East London or the farmer saving a handful of ancient grain, a new agricultural landscape is emerging. Here rural traditions meet modern innovations in a new food system that will bring back life to the soil, a fair wage to the farmer and a flavour to the tomato!
Throughout the tumultuous summer of the Brexit referendum the Landworkers’ Alliance joined forces with two film-makers, to unearth the farms and faces that are making this change happen.
We stand on the brink, the future is uncertain, but the seeds of a better food system are In Our Hands!

Photographs and paintings have been contributed by those who look after the Zam’munda garden.
