You Couldn't Make it Up, Number 1,457?

Are you empowering your community? Improving sustainability renewal? Unlocking community engagement? Empowering your sustainability? Or sustainably participating?

Count up how many buzzwords and phrases you can find in this Scottish Government promotion. Then try and work out what it means:

“The Scottish Government is consulting on a Community Empowerment and Renewal Bill under three themes: Strengthening Community Participation, Unlocking Enterprising Community Development, and Renewing Our Communities. EVOC – in conjunction with the Edinburgh Partnership and Neighbourhood Partnerships – is running a ThinkSpace engagement including an event in the Business Centre, City Chambers, from 2pm to 4.30pm on Thursday 23rd August. The Engagement begins here – tell us what you think about Participation, Renewal and Unlocking Enterprise.

“In terms of size and range of organisations there is great diversity across Edinburgh and all will have differing levels of current GIRFEC knowledge. It is likely that all agencies work under pressures of time and this Guidance summary is designed with this in mind.”

If you think you can interpret this, or have come across similar examples of official gobbledygook, please send to [email protected] marked for the attention of the Sustainable Communities and Renewable Empowerment Desk. This will help accelerate our Delivery Unlocking Engagement Initiative.
