A new initiative to support people in building a more sustainable relationship with the natural environment is being launched in Argyll and Bute.

Argyll and Bute Green Network will recognise and highlight the value of the work local people, businesses and social enterprises are doing in pioneering a different relationship between people and the natural world.

The number of social enterprises per head of population in Argyll and Bute is among the highest in Scotland, with many of those working on land stewardship, wildlife conservation and building resilient communities.

To launch the Argyll and Bute Green Network, the start-up project team is seeking expressions of interest from businesses, groups and individuals in Argyll and Bute who are contributing in any way to the practice and understanding of low-energy, low-impact, high value living.

The team is drawn from members of the Argyll and Bute branch of the Scottish Green Party but the intention is that once the directory has been compiled, Argyll and Bute Green Network will become self-governing and will not have any political affiliation.

Membership is open to any individual, group, organisation or business based in Argyll and Bute who can demonstrate a willingness to embrace the principles of sustainable living. The future activities and direction of the network will be determined by its members.

Anyone interested in joining the network should complete the survey at
