Running a network

What does it mean to run a network? This was the question some folk who run a range of different community networks across Scotland asked of themselves when they met up recently.

Just acknowledging that simple truth appears to have been a bit of a relief for all concerned. Lovely short film from one of the networks offers some insights.



A short film about CCN (The Coastal Communities Network) and the work that we do to support community-led action in Scotland to safeguard and restore our coastal and marine environments. 


The footage for this film was filmed by Graham Richardson ( at our CCN annual gathering in May 023.
