What's happening in January?

21 January

Wow! A day dedicated to hugs! How much better can it get? So find a friend or family member and give them a great big one!

24 January

There are thousands of spoken languages in the world and along with that, lots of different traditions and ways of life. But what connects us all? You got it, laughter! Global Belly Laugh Day will celebrate one of our most natural and universal reflexes on 24 January, so be sure to tune into to your inner comedian and reap the health benefits - not to mention the feel good factor - of laughing! Even better, celebrate the day with friends!

26 January - 2 February

Storytelling is a valuable tool for engaging people through their emotions, values and imaginations. Hold a storytelling session in your local community space so everyone can enjoy the benefits.

15 January - 6-8pm

Recruiting volunteers, attracting customers, finding new core members - bringing people in to your community project can be an ongoing struggle! Come and share challenges and ideas, hear tips and stories which have worked for others, and learn from whatever brought you to your project in the first place. This relaxed, open workshop will take place online, please email Peter at plefort@edenproject.com for joining instructions.

This event is open to our network members in driving distance of Derry, or anyone else who would like meet more community people, or to get peer support with any community ideas being planned or in progress.

Join Eden Project Communities for a discussion about how eating together can create connections – in the workplace, in streets, in parks, in community centres, in places of worship, in schools, in prisons… and the different mechanisms that we can use to make it happen.
