The Trust will deliver a two-year project for communities across Argyll and Bute to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee through intergenerational workshops, bringing people together, old and young to share skills in making and repairing, recycling and upcycling – small local actions that can have a big impact on climate change.

‘Waste no more!’ will bring together young people with the older generation to share knowledge, skills and experience to cut down waste of the planets resources. The Trust wants create a knowledge bank with how-to guides, a skills directory and a network of volunteers ready to champion waste reduction.
Launching this summer, the project will celebrate the Platinum Jubilee and will make a huge difference to ordinary people across Argyll and Bute in the next two years.

The GRAB Trust will be working with communities in celebration of the Platinum Jubilee and help reduce the volume of waste going to landfill. British Heart Foundation research shows 30% of adults throw away household items that could have been donated, sold or reused and a fifth of 16-24-year-olds don’t actually know how to recycle or donate. The ‘Waste No More!’ project from The GRAB Trust is for everyone, young and old. Bringing people together to share their skills across generations.

The Trust is looking forward to getting everyone, making, mending, upcycling, repairing and repurposing. Sharing skills, making the most of existing resources and caring for the planet.

The Trust is to invite participation from community partners to share resources and extend project reach. The project aim is to deliver activities on the ground within local communities and mirror content online through social media – linking the people who have skills to the people who want to acquire them.
