Chris Hellawell is the Founder and Director of the Edinburgh Tool Library (ETL), which he set up in 2013 to use resource sharing as a way to address both social and environmental challenges in his community. From a simple idea of running a library of tools instead of books, ETL has grown to encompass a variety of programmes from mentorship and skills training to community building and food education, as well as multiple sites across the East of Scotland.
