About this Event

THE EVENT

12-13 October 2019, Telford

Eden Connects is a two-day residential for community-minded people who have an active role in their communities. This is an opportunity to put on your community hat, step away from your every day distractions (however lovely and wonderful) and join us for a weekend of learning, sharing, connecting, and inspiring, meeting like-minded people from across England and Wales. There will be formal and informal activities, spaces for you to bring your own questions, challenges, and skills to the table, and opportunities to work together with others.

WHEN

The weekend of 12-13 October 2019, arrival on 12th of October at noon, and programme finishes after lunch on Sunday 13th October.

WHERE

This residential will take place at a historic location in the Ironbridge and Coalport area just south of Telford. Transport from and to Telford Central station can be arranged upon request. The event will include walks in the surrounding countryside as well as visits to projects and meeting locals who are active in their community.

This is free to attend, with accommodation and food covered, and possibility to provide travel bursaries too (see below). Places are limited and will be allocated on a geographical basis to ensure there is an even distribution of people and projects. Sign up for this event and we will contact you by the end of August to confirm availability.

THE OFFER

Accommodation will be provided in shared rooms (2 people per room) at the local YHA, which limits us to 36 participants for the event. If you are happy to share a room with more people, or if you live nearby and do not need accommodation, we may be able to have more than 36 people attending the sessions. Food and refreshments will be provided throughout the duration of the event (please inform us of any dietary requirements)

Transport: We have a small number of bursaries to put towards assisting with travel costs if they would otherwise be a barrier. Please get in touch with us and we would love to discuss how we can support you to attend this event.

YOU

You are a community-minded individual, representing yourself or a project, and are active in your community. You are established in your community and have taken an active role for some time, and are looking for opportunities to develop your practice further, learn from peers from across the country, and share your experiences with others.

US

We are Eden Project Communities, and we support people like you! As part of our yearly programme of activities across the UK, we deliver a number of regional and national events to help connect people who are active in their own communities. We run online workshops, Community Camps, and regional networking events. If you are interested in hearing how you can get involved and work with us in bringing our work to where you live, get in touch with communities@edenproject.com and we'll connect you to your regional Community Network Developer!
