Transition Town Market Harborough, including the Market Harborough Environment Group - a growing network of local groups and individuals involved with the environment and sustainability are excited to invite you to our first ever planning workshop posing the question: “What can we do to improve the Sustainability of Market Harborough in 2015 and beyond”. We will looking to get your questions and their answers that help us to understand this and plan for what needs to be done.
Have you ever stopped to wonder if there is a better way of doing things and why we allow things to continue as they do, have you wondered what the right questions are to get to the correct answers?
We will be running the session as an “Open Space” session, a special way of running workshops, so hopefully it will be a fun as well as rewarding evening. A bit about “Open space”:
Have you ever been to a conference, business or otherwise, where the delegates are seated and spoken at by speakers of varying ability? The history behind “Open Space” is rooted in the observation that more networking was done and information exchanged in the coffee breaks than in the business of these events and hence “open space” was devised to create an open and creative space for ideas.
It would be great if you were able to have a think before the event about any questions or answers that you would like to discuss at the workshop.
We are looking for about 8 topics for the evening, but don’t worry we will go through a brainstorming session on the evening to find the favorite 8.
What is going well ? What isn’t working ? What hasn’t been addressed ? Is it possible to do this ?
What do we hope to get from this event ? We would like to have some questions and a series of things that we can do as a community to deliver solutions to them. These will help form the projects that you and us undertake together as a community over the next year and into the future.
We look forward to seeing you at the Angel Hotel on Thursday January 8th ready for a 7.30 start, finish by 9.30 .
Darren, Mark and the team!
