Are Our Space
Join us and discover unlikely – we call them extreme – collaborations. You’ll meet people with different perspectives, styles and ambitions. People who believe we can accelerate efforts to bring about a fairer, more prosperous and sustainable city. Through new ideas, relationships and collaborations.
Everyone’s Edinburgh is the first UK member of the global Cities CANB movement.
We are part of a growing international cities network – promoting wider individual and organisation engagement to impact global change at a city level.
If you are a change maker and collaborator at heart who wants to see change happening quicker – we have a shared purpose, fellow collaborators and space for you.
An Optimistic Future
There is much great work being done by skilful, caring and committed people across our city.
We are not seeking to reinvent any existing wheels. We are looking to encourage stronger connections across all sectors, groups and neighbourhoods to accelerate progress and achieve greater impact.
By 2030 we’re optimistic that Edinburgh will be an even greater place to live! We will have ended poverty, improved our environment and expanded our circular economy – perhaps even becoming a zero waste city!
Many more businesses than today will be part of driving positive environmental and social impact. We will use our connection to each other to build a stronger sense of belonging and wellbeing across our diverse city communities.
Gathering and Support
We currently meet each month at a Gathering – where we cultivate & ferment relationship building and ideas.
Relationships lead to collaborations. We provide ongoing support to help people connect and develop confident plans. We coordinate helping with resourcing and funding programmes of action.
As a newly established SCIO we also have a Trustee Board supporting members to grow and evolve Everyone’s Edinburgh.

Keep Edinburgh warm this winter
With Scottish winter on its way, the bleakest months are ahead of us. For people and families in poverty, this doesn’t just mean shorter daylight hours. It also means colder and longer dark nights – where heating or eating is a real choice many in Edinburgh will have to face, especially with the rising food costs and crippling energy prices experienced during this recent crisis.
We believe that in 2022, no one in our city should have to choose between eating or heating – that’s why Everyone’s Edinburgh has partnered with The Turn2us Edinburgh Trust to launch a Keeping Edinburgh Warm Fund.
We hope to encourage 1250 ‘EnerGenerous’ people & families to help us reach a target of £500k which will enable us to make grants to over 600 Edinburgh families.

Our collaborations are constantly evolving and being added to. Currently these include:
Grow Your Business For Good – A practical programme to simplify how business owners can develop their purpose and contribution to creating a better future city. Offering advice, Advisers, Mentors, training and a city network for business owners.
Green Foundation Apprenticeships – Creating accredited pathways for young people – who struggle with school – to enter the green economy. A collaboration of members from the business, charity and public sectors – hoping to launch in time for the 22/23 school year.
