'Do A Little, Change A Lot' or DALCAL
Emma Taylor, Scotish Executive.

We are now entering year 2 of the Executive's Do A Little, Change A Lot' (DALCAL) environment campaign. So far we have tackled climate change as a topic and we are about to expand the reach of the campaign to encompass awareness of waste issues.

DALCAL is an awareness campaign and as such aims to raise the profile of key environmental issues, hopefully converting this to behavioural change over time. We measure the success of the campaign on an annual basis via a quantitative research study in late September/early October. The baseline for this was carried out in 2000 and so far we have seen statistically significant changes in attitudes (copies of the research are available for those interested in finding out more). There are no specific targets for the campaign as these are incorporated within the existing policy areas of the Executive.

Community Re>Paint

Community Re>Paint schemes collect surlpus, leftover paint from householders, DIY retailers amd painters and decorators. This paint is then given to other community groups and projects, diverting materials from the waste stream for the benefit of the community.

Community and voluntary groups are being invited to apply for funding under the combined Phase IV and V of the five year national expansion programme which will see 90 Community Re>Paint schemes set up by 2005.

Successful applicants will receive a £3000 capital grant, technical advice and practical support to establish a Community Re>Paint scheme, publicity support, training for staff, 2000 promotional leaflets and a Community Re>Paint Technical Manual.

  • Enhance community participation in sustainability projects.

The Sustainable Scotland Network

The aim of the Sustainable Scotland Network is to promote sustainable development in Scotland, through the work of Scottish local government. It seeks to achieve this by:

  • Securing councils' commitment to the sustainable development process.
  • Ensuring sustainable development is reflected in councils' policies, programmes and activities - as well as its own performance.
  • Raising awareness of the issue within councils and our communities.
  • Working in partnership with other agencies and constituencies - for example through community planning.
  • Measuring, monitoring and reporting on progress.
