In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.


Vine Trust

Our Centre for Global Citizenship is based onboard a barge in Leith, Edinburgh.

The resource includes a small cinema, interactive exhibition and flexible workshop space. It is a first class resource for school groups, teachers’ receptions and other youth organisations to interact with global issues.

We can deliver all the presentations listed on the Global Citizenship page to upper primary classes and all secondary year groups. We also run day conferences for senior secondary groups on:

- World Poverty
- Education for All
- Maternal Health
- Global Health and Wellbeing

These are multi-media based conferences with examples from Tanzania and Peru. There will be times of discussion, group work and a creative workshop as the group engage in the issues and are challenged to make a difference.

We do not charge school or youth groups to visit the barge. Please get in touch to discuss booking your school to come onboard!

Vine Trust is passionate about facilitating young people to raise their horizons and develop a ‘can do’ attitude to some of the world’s most pressing issues.
