Our second local lead partner is Crossroads Youth and Community Association (CYCA), based in Laurieston and working across the Gorbals.

Throughout almost sixty years of activity, Crossroads has remained true to the vision of its founder members - that people have “the right to live gloriously”: whatever in the individual makes this possible must be nurtured and strengthened; whatever in society makes this impossible must be challenged and changed:

“The opportunity to work as a lead partner on Creative Climate Futures is exciting for us, we hold firm our belief that the climate crisis is also a climate justice issue. To fully address both we need to ensure local communities at grassroots level are at the heart of designing, developing and delivering solutions and change.”  - Dani Waddell, Charity Manager at CYCA
