Wales Co-pro Network Meeting
Thursday 4 October, 3.00 - 5.30, Swansea Civic Centre
The one you have all been waiting for! A chance to discover whether the reality lives up to the photographs AND to share best practice and get our twinkling lights out from under our massy bushels. Full programme will be confirmed shortly...
An Eventbrite invite will be sent out early next week. Thanks to Nick Andrews and Swansea Council for providing the venue.
Ruth has gently nudged me to offer a session for the October network meeting.
After much deliberation and playing with titles I propose "Co-producing a Green Society".
In which I'll suggest that it's vital our co-productive endeavours are informed by a clear understanding of the global crisis and by a vision and action plan for addressing it.
What fun we shall have :)
Epic! Thanks Paul. Looking forward to finding out what the solution is to the global crisis (and possibly the meaning of life?). :}
Offer from Rick Wilson - accepted with alacrity and glee:
I would be interested in giving a presentation about how we can practically work together to create a 'social' Social Services, this would enable citizens, agencies, and community groups to use their shared skills to meet their mutual needs. There are a lot of opportunities within the new proposed Social Services Wales Bill as well as lots of examples of things people are doing across Wales to create change, we need to think these through together.
