Local Networks

Upstart is establishing local networks around Scotland and hope eventually to have local groups in every part of the country. A local group provides:a dedicated Facebook page to help people in a locality keep in touch, plan events etc., with other Upstart supporters in the area
  • a local convener to help coordinate any local activities, e.g. to help publicise the campaign launch in May 2016
  • the possibility of organising ‘real-life’ meetings and social events, featuring Upstart speakers and providing an opportunity to exchange ideas (e.g. café meetups)
  • a way of ensuring that everyone’s ideas and suggestions about the campaign can influence its future direction.
