What is "Fixing for a Future"? 

"Fixing for a Future" is a collaboration between Climate Action East Linton and Sustaining Dunbar. It is funded for 2 years, April 2020-April 2022, by the Climate Challenge Fund. 

The original aim of the project, prior to Covid-19, was to deliver:

  • 24 monthly Repair Cafes

  • 10 series of Skills Workshops (2 joinery, 4 clothes repair and 4 bicycle repair)

  • Training to 8 people to become Carbon Conversation Facilitators

Changes to the Project due to Covid-19

Due to Covid-19, the project has been unable to progress as planned. Since April 2020, we have delivered an alternative programme of activities to the local community:

 

  • A series of online conversations "Need or Want: What Matters Post-Covid-19?" focusing on themes of Consumption; Work & Use of Time; Nature and Environment

  • A series of online sewing classes for beginners, delivered by Sheena from Seams Sew, a Dunbar-based business

  • Online Carbon Conversation Facilitator training has been completed and our team is ready to go! 

  • 2 Bicycle Repair Cafes at The Mart, East Linton

You can find out more about all of these activities - and more - in our blog.
