Annual Lecture and Conference Registration OPEN!

CLD Standards Council Members’ Annual Lecture and Conference 2020 Registration is now OPEN!

The Lecture and conference will take place on Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 March 2020 respectively, and will be held at the John McIntyre Centre, Edinburgh.

Having taken account of feedback from previous events, we have extended the Conference experience with the option for members to attend a CLD Values in Theory Lecture the evening before. You can choose to attend either the Lecture OR the Conference OR BOTH!

We have packed agendas at both events. Key highlights include:

CLD Values in Theory – Tuesday 24 March 6-8pm

  • Andy Turner, Lecturer, Goldsmiths University of London – Empowerment, Tension and Social Movement
  • Dr Louise Sheridan, Lecturer, University of Glasgow – Embodying ‘Alfirmo’

CLD Values in Action – Wednesday 25 March 9.00am – 4.30pm

  • Ministerial Keynote – Mr Richard Lochhead, Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science
  • Keynote – Gavin Oattes – Tree of Knowledge
  • Keynote – Dynamic Earth
  • Community Empowerment – a Human Rights Approach
  • Equalities and Inclusion – CLDSC Workforce Research findings; Implications and Actions for CLDSC
