Description

About the Workshop

Are you a member or volunteer at Food Sharing Edinburgh? Then this workshop is for you!

Running effective meetings is the CORE of Food Sharing. Effective meetings help us communicate respectfully with each other, make decisions that everyone is comfortable with, and make the most of everyone's time. Our ability to make productive decisions depends on our ability to run meetings! Without this, we could not operate as a volunteer-led movement for change.

This is a vital skill for anybody interested in grassroots organising, coops, or community groups.

Have you never facilitated before because you lack the confidence? Would you like to hone your existing facilitation skills? Are you a member or a volunteer at Food Sharing that's never attended a meeting? Then you can benefit from meeting facilitation training!

This training wil be delivere by Tripod: Training for Creative Social Action in the SHRUB Coop: 13, Guthrie Street, EH1 1JG.

About Tripod

We are committed to strengthening struggles for social, economic and environmental justice. We offer training, facilitation, conflict mediation and other support to grassroots collectives, community and campaigning groups, cooperatives and non-profit organisations. Our work helps people to develop skills and work in better allignment with their visions and values. This means they can more effectively challenge multiple systems of oppression as broad-ranging as capitalism, ableism, patriarchy and racism and collaborate together to build alternatives.

Our vision is of a world where communities organise for collective liberation by taking direct action, dismantling oppression, working together in solidarity,learning from experience and caring for one another.

Facilitation often falls to more confident and experienced group members. Our trainings emphasise facilitation as a role and an attitude that can be shared between group members. We also explore practical tools and methods which can increase your capacity and confidence to support your group to have more effective and inclusive meetings.

Feedback on Tripod Training

"Tripod’s training gave me and my group the opportunity to develop much needed skills for grassroots organizing. Their passion combined with their knowledge and skills has been invaluable in building our confidence to facilitate skillshares ourselves, creating a domino effect and a stronger grassroots movement."
