To book a place at the workshop on Wednesday 19 August, 10.30 – 11.45am and receive details of the log on to Zoom conferencing:
We want to build thriving communities in Edinburgh and embrace the opportunity to create a different type of relationship with residents, communities and organisations across the city. We are starting a conversation to build the Edinburgh Pact. The Edinburgh Pact will be an agreement between the Partnership and everyone who lives and works in Edinburgh. Our first step is to listen and learn what health and social care means to you.
How is the Edinburgh Pact being developed?
The Edinburgh Pact will be developed by folding in many different conversations and activities with our partners, community organisations and people who live and work in Edinburgh. This includes a public survey, in-depth interviews with city leaders and PhotoVoice – an opportunity for citizens to express in images what health means to them. One of the key activities is meeting with community organisations and citizens is to have more in-depth discussions and an open dialogue with colleagues and citizens.
What is the format of the meetings?
The Edinburgh Pact team welcome the opportunity to meet with communities and colleagues either in the city wide meeting (book above) or in the Voluntary Sector Forum Meetings which will run from 10th to 25th August. The meetings will be hosted by colleagues in EVOC on the platform Zoom.
The Edinburgh Pact session will consist of open questions with the hope to generate discussion. No preparation is needed in advance. All we ask is you come with an open-mind and willing to share your thoughts and views.
If you have any questions or concerns in advance, please feel free to contact Sophie.Milner@edinburgh.gov.uk
