Community skill share at County Hall in Oxford

By John Charlton

The Community Action Group (CAG) Network Skill Share is a chance for community groups from across Oxfordshire and beyond to come together to swap ideas and inspiration, take part in training and get expert advice.

The day will cover everything from practical “how-to” workshops on projects and skills for improving our communities, to sessions on developing your group and building resilience. Events will include:

Energy projects: Thermal imaging and Community Energy Manager
Waste projects: Repair Cafes and PAT testing
Food surplus projects: Cafes, community fridges and shops
Transport projects: Air pollution and safer cycling
Sustaining the gaze and avoiding burnout
Loneliness and engaging harder to reach communities
Managing group conflict
Tools for organising our groups effectively

A world café session in the afternoon will provide an opportunity for all involved in CAGs to help shape how the CAG Project evolves to better support what the CAGs require to thrive and develop.

The event will also be open to wider networks including Devon CAGs, Big Lunch Extra groups, Oxford Student Hubs and Oxford University Student Environmental groups.

The CAG Skill Share is at County Hall on Saturday November 11
