Thursday 7 October
We will be hosting our third Green Communities Learning Network webinar on Thursday 7th October from 2-3.30pm. Following on from two engaging and well-attended events in March and June, grassroots groups will come together again as part of this ‘community network’ to understand and discuss how monitoring, learning and evaluation (MEL) practices can be implemented to ensure community groups are having the greatest impact possible with their council engagement.
MEL is a critical and often overlooked process which allows organisations to test that their strategies are delivering against their goals, create more opportunities to influence policy and provide community groups the opportunity to track their progress and demonstrate the impact of their work in front of perspective funders.
We will hear from experts with wide-ranging knowledge of supporting multiple community groups on measuring their impact, including evaluators from the Scottish Climate Challenge Fund and the National Lottery Community Climate Action Fund, in addition to Ashden’s Head of Impact and Policy.
This event is open to all sectors and provides a unique opportunity where grassroots groups from across the climate action spectrum can come together to share their own stories and ideas from their own experiences of using MEL practices and how this has impacted their projects.
- Learn the business case for MEL practices and how they can be used to strengthen your organisations impact
- Hear from a range of expert speakers with experience of analysing impact related to large climate action funds such as the Scottish Climate Challenge Fund and the National Lottery Climate Action Community Fund
- Connect with similar climate action organisations and understand what their current MEL processes are
