Green Aspirations


Green Aspirations Scotland is a social enterprise based in Glasgow and the Woodland of Killearn, Stirlingshire, established by Louise McAllister and Paul Cookson in April 2012 to assist communities to raise their aspirations for a better, vibrant and healthy local environment. GrAsp has been created to provide educational and employability services to children and young adults; workshop experiences for all ages; a range of sustainable timber products, including chopping boards, candle holders, stools and garden ornaments; and timber supplies for social and commercial enterprises. A range of professional consultancy services is on offer including environmental project design and planning advice; community consultations, woodland management; events management and feasibility studies.


The Green Aspirations Scotland team are committed to the principles of sustainable development and community empowerment. Professional knowledge and experience are complemented with enthusiasm and creativity combined with a willingness to support, encourage and inspire others.


Links with schools will develop educational opportunities, including learning about the environment under Curriculum for Excellence. All the activities are linked to specific outcomes in


the years while children are in education. We also provide Volunteering and Skills outcomes to obtain the Duke of Edinburgh awards. Activities include: Path building, Rhododendron bashing; building boardwalks; shelter building etc. Classes, events and workshops appeal to individuals and organisations interested in the enjoyment of participation in practical tasks within an open rural environment.
