Offers and Needs Market (OANM): for New Scots & Scottish Communities
About the event:
Arriving in Scotland can be a demotivating and frustrating experience because it is illegal to work until you have been granted ‘refugee status’ by the government. Exchanging skills and resources with others, however, is not against the law.
This online event provides a space for New Scots to exchange their skills with others in Scotland through an ‘Offers And Needs Marketplace’ (OANM). These Marketplaces allow us to bring different communities together, exchange resources and build a better system.
Through an OANM we realise that we are more than our jobs, which helps us live fully and experience value beyond money.

Since April 2018 a group of individuals from across Scotland who are connected to different forms of activism and social change have been meeting to develop project ideas in response to the frames of Degrowth and Decolonisation. By Degrowth we mean a form of society and economy that aims at the well-being of all and sustains the natural basis of life.
To achieve degrowth, we need a fundamental transformation of our lives and an extensive cultural change. Degrowth implies an equitable redistribution of wealth within and across the Global North and South, as well as between present and future generations. Unless it is just, it is not degrowth.
