Rural Car Club – How local authority pool cars can become a part of our rural communities

Public Bodies are required under the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 to act in a way that contributes to the delivery of Scotland’s emissions reduction targets and in a way that it considers most sustainable. One main area where rural local authorities are challenged is with regard to transport and how we can reduce our emissions and costs associated with staff making business journeys in their own vehicles. More pool vehicles need to be available but across a rural network with an opportunity for our communities to also benefit. So, the challenge is set - Is there a way to develop and maintain a car club model which covers a large geographical area meeting the needs of its people and the services we provide? What network and technological systems need to be built in order for this to be successful? What will investment look like and what savings could be made and who do we engage with along the way?

Outdoor Learning: It’s in our Nature

We are looking to harness the power and availability of, and young people’s enthusiasm for, popular (phone/tablet) technology to provide an efficient and effective solution to the challenge of better supporting outdoor education and learning.

Engaging people in nature is a crucial challenge that could help to address a number of public sector pressures in Scotland today. With a rise in mental health issues and obesity; attainment gaps across Scottish schools; and pressures on biodiversity, getting people outside and excited about nature could provide a multidimensional solution to some of Scotland’s most pressing societal issues.

Scotland’s National Nature Reserves showcase some of Scotland’s most spectacular and diverse natural heritage. With around 3, 5000 school pupils visiting SNH Reserves every year, NNRs provide an exciting environment for learning and a chance for pupils to connect and engage with nature.

Smart Road Corridor Legacy Challenge

Transport Scotland wish to identify the wider opportunities a Smart Corridor connectivity could offer on the A9, and possible other roads, for example:

- Other opportunities from data collection which connectivity can facilitate

The opportunities need not be directly related to the road itself, but could be wide ranging in nature and of benefit to other stakeholders and the public.

The IT platform must be capable of relaying the booking information securely to the driver and allow the customer making the booking to track the journey’s progress to allow any connection or collection arrangements to be honoured.

Developing an app for taxi drivers to endorse a smartcard giving people free travel, helping councils cut down on fraud and paper administration.

East Lothian Council is looking for a partner to develop a solution using National Entitlement Cards for its taxicard subsidised transport scheme. This solution has to be easy for taxi drivers to adopt and make it easier for citizens to know how many of their entitlement to trips they have already used.

Creative Scotland

The Forward Project

A networked mutual bank for the creative industries.

In 1784 the pioneering inventor Benjamin Franklin championed the idea of ‘pay it forward’, suggesting that society benefits more by debts being paid to a needy third party rather the original lender. At the same time in Scotland, Adam Smith created the logic for the ‘invisible hand’ of the market. Our current understanding of how markets work has been fixed for some time, but social networks now give us the tools to disrupt and reconstruct the ways in which money and value moves around. We now want to work with the brightest minds in Scotland to undertake the how, why and what of a new system of mutuality that will support the inclusive growth of our small creative businesses.
