We hope those who register for the course will be able to attend each evening in order to get the most from the sessions. There will also be some suggested preparatory materials for each session and if there is an evening you aren't available you'll still be able to follow the threads across the course.

You will be able to use the week of 25th May to either utilise self-learning materials on the topic or participate in the Intergenerate Conference
