Action for Sustainable Living has a networking event coming up!
“Ever wonder about what other well kept secrets of sustainability are underway in South Manchester? Want to tell others about what you’re doing? Want to find out what’s going on and get involved?
“The re-launched South Manchester Environment Forum could be just the ticket. Here’s what to expect:
6.30-6.45pm: Facilitated networking
6.45-7.00pm: Crowd mapping (find out what we’re all up to and interested in with our crowd mapping game)
7.00-7.30pm: Talk from a mystery local project followed by Q&A
7.30-8.00pm: Open Mic for anyone and everyone to pitch their projects, ideas and questions to the rest of us
8.00-8.30pm: Stick around for some (this time informal) networking
Disclaimer: About a year ago AfSL were on the receiving end of a rare tetchy blog post by MCFly co-editor Marc Hudson. It’s quite long, but the gist was that a series of mini-workshops is NOT a forum. A forum is a place for discussion, networking, mingling etc. This above looks rather like a forum. Of course, these things can always fall down in the execution, but it looks dead good, and MCFly would encourage people to attend.
Further Disclaimer: AfSL have agreed to be “guinea pigs” for a workshop around “Activist Skills and Knowledge”. This may have coloured my willingess to plug their event. But probably not.
