Waste Collaborate (Autumn 2019) @ Makespace Oxford | England | United Kingdom

The Waste Collaborate meeting is an opportunity for Community Action Groups (CAGs) working on the theme of Waste to meet up, share and find ways of working together.

The meeting is 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.

  • 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

Meetings are held biannually across a range of themes – please see our page on Collaborate Groups for more details on next meetings of all the groups.
