'Your Scottish Parliament' Conference


Carnegie Conference Centre, Dunfermline

Saturday, 5 December

How can I get my voice heard at Holyrood?

People from local community groups learned how to engage effectively with MSPs and the Parliament at a half day conference. 

What kind of workshops and presentations were there?

The conference consisted of a number of short workshops and presentations aimed at ‘skilling up’ community groups, covering topics such as:

  • How the Scottish Parliament works
  • How laws are made
  • How to submit a petition
  • How to engage through social media
  • How to work with local media
  • How to engage with Parliamentary Committees

There was also a range of stalls providing details of how to get involved, covering other engagement methods such as Cross-Party Groups, etc.

Who was it for?

The Conference was aimed specifically at grass-roots, community-based organisations and was ideally suited for people who have little or no experience of engaging with their MSPs and the Parliament.
