A workshop to connect our community networks, building our strengths and seeing positive action for the climate and the community
We know net zero is coming, but what transition does it require of everyday people? This workshop will unpack what net zero means in reality for the community and facilitate a conversation about how they can align their efforts. It will also unpack what role vibrant local spaces play in getting people to connect and build stronger communities.
This workshop will include opportunities for existing community champions and groups to meet, connect and network. It will enable local and national examples to be shared and discussed. We will include a place-making activity as part of the session as well, enabling a ‘hands-on’ component for us to work together.
Why are we hosting this workshop?
A common thread of feedback is the desire for more connections within the community, opportunities to build on each other’s strengths, skills and passions. Many groups are struggling with volunteer capacity, but building collectively we hope to achieve more.
Council can play a supporting administrative role to maintain momentum and assist with facilitating progress, however over time it is hoped to be a self-sustaining network prioritising community climate action.
