The Commission helps take human rights beyond the formalities of the legal system and into day-to-day life in Scotland.
Participating in human rights related events is one way of doing this, and forthcoming events that could help you 'get involved' in promoting a human rights culture in Scotland are listed below. There are details here of events across the country, from conferences and training courses to cultural events, professional practice seminars and community meetings.
The Commission is not associated with any of the Events listed and can take no responsibility for their content, change of dates or venues, etc. If you are interested in attending an Event please contact the organisers as directed.
Please tell us about other events you are organising.
Please go along and learn more about what integration might mean to the services you receive and have your say on how this should happen. It will also be an opportunity to hear the latest news about the integration of care that has already been happening in other parts of Scotland.

What is lean? The core idea is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. Simply, lean means creating more value for customers with fewer resources. A lean organisation understands customer value and focuses its key processes to continuously increase it. The ultimate goal is to provide perfect value to the customer through a perfect value creation process that has zero waste.
In these challenging financial times, we must frame our negotiations with employers in this context. Organisations won’t give people opportunities unless it makes sound business sense. Understanding lean methodology will help us to promote our services in business language and concepts.
