The CAG Skill Share returns for it’s fifth year

with No Comments

Join us at County Hall in Oxford for the fifth annual CAG Network Skill Share on Saturday 11 November.

The CAG Network Skill Share is the highlight of the CAG calendar and 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, including:

  • 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.

There will be a delicious local lunch, tea & coffee, local apple juice and wine to enjoy.

The full schedule will be released soon, but book now to guarantee a place!

You can also join the event on Facebook, and invite your friends along.


We are asking for a suggested donation of £5 on the door to help us cover the costs of tea & coffee, a local lunch and a local wine/apple juice reception.

The event will also be open to wider networks including Devon CAGs, Big Lunch Extra groups, Oxford Hub groups and Oxford University student environmental groups.

Some funding for the event has kindly been provided by Oxfordshire County Council.
