Our Projects

A big part of this collaborative project is to use our collective reach to really dig down into local issues. We can explore how national stories play out at a local level. And we can also see patterns and themes emerge that will take a seemingly local story to a Scotland-wide level. We have lots of ideas that we’re starting to work on, including looking into planning systems, community assets, the housing crisis, rural education, common good funds, renewable energy and more.

When we work collectively like this, we’ll publish our stories as projects on this page, as well as on our partners’ publications. We’d love to hear your ideas for what we should be working on. Have your say here.
