Collaborate programme launched

with No Comments

Collaborate events are opportunities for Community Action Groups (CAGs) working on similar projects or across a common theme to meet up, share and find ways of working together.

The meetings are open to members of the CAG network, as well as other associated, like-minded groups and organisations. We also moderate theme mailing lists for CAGs to communicate with each other between meetings.

As a large network spread across the county, the meetings are an important chance for CAGs to:

  • Discover more about other groups’ activities and achievements
  • Share knowledge and skills
  • Explore opportunities for collaborative projects and funding bids
  • Gain advice and support from The CAG Project staff and other members
  • Network and socialise with other members

We currently are coordinating the following meetings:

  • Plastics: 3rd September 2018 & 4th March 2019
  • Waste: 2nd October 2018 & 4th April 2019
  • Energy: 19th November 2018 & 6th May 2019
  • Growing: 22nd November 2018 & 23rd May 2019
  • Food surplus: 4th December 2018 & 4th June 2019
  • Learning: Date to be confirmed

Time and location: @ 18.30-20.30, Makespace Oxford, 1 Aristotle Lane, Oxford, OX2 6TP

If you are a member of a group wishing to take part in one of these meetings or wish to start a Collaborate on a new theme please get in touch with Alice Hemming and Henry Owen (The CAG Project Coordinators):
