NEWS FROM WALES: AUGUST

Events

Worth your weight in gold – knowing your value and values - 27 September 2019 10.30am-4pm 

This free community networking event will focus on your value and values. We’ll be hosted by ‘Outside Lives’, a brand new social enterprise set up by network member Lucy, who gave up her job to follow this dream and be true to her values.

If you’re doing good in your community or want to, come along to meet, share, chat and learn from others doing similar and go away with new connections and ideas. For more information and to let us know you’re coming, click here

Online Workshop – Inclusion 

Join Eden Project Communities and community-minded people from across the UK in a free online workshop about inclusion and what it means for you.

Tuesday 24 September 6-8pm and Friday 27 September 12-2pm

You'll be invited to share your experience, and have the chance to talk with and learn from others who are in the same boat. If you've not joined one of our online workshops before, they are really easy and relaxed, all are welcome!

We will be running the workshop twice, an evening and a lunchtime, to make it as accessible as possible to all.

England & Wales national networking gathering - 12 and 13 October 2019 

Save the date for our upcoming nationwide networking event. We’re teaming up with our colleagues and invite you to connect and share with people doing great things in their communities across Wales and England.

Spaces are limited for this energising event, so if you are interested, please contact Sam on sevans@edenproject.com for more information.

More events across Wales on the horizon

We’re currently planning our events over the Autumn months. All our events are based on what’s most helpful to you, so if you have an idea, a theme, or a location that you think would be great for a get together of like-minded community folk, we’d love to hear from you. We’re here to support you to connect with each other, as we know great things happen when we connect and share! Get in touch with Sam sevans@edenproject.com

Spaces available for Community Camp  

Spaces are quickly filling up for our Community Camp in September, however applications are still open for the camp in November.   Community Camps are residential experiences full of workshops, practical resources and networking opportunities hosted at the Eden Project in Cornwall.
