Greening Chinnor Repair Cafe @ Chinnor Village Hall
Nov 24 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Greening Chinnor Repair Cafe @ Chinnor Village Hall | England | United Kingdom

Come along to our next Repair Café where we match amazing repairers with people who need stuff fixed … and all for FREE.

You can also pick up ideas on how to fix things yourself, if that interests you.

Bring your small electrical, mechanical, household items and textiles and learn how to repair them. Items should be small enough for one person to carry.

Please bring your item before 12:00 pm

Our repairers are good and can fix many things but there are no guarantees.

For further details about the event check out the FAQs on our Project tab at www.greeningchinnor.blogspot.co.uk. Enquiries: greeningchinnor@gmail.com or call 07973 788339.

The event is entirely run by volunteers and we aim for a relaxed social atmosphere where anyone can pop in. As well as repairs you can drop in for a cuppa and homemade cake. The repairs are free but donations towards costs will be gratefully received. There may be some spares/consumables to purchase on the day.

Online Live Chat:Using Art to Communicate Environmental Research @ Online

Join The Bookshop Band and University of Oxford Environmental Change Institute in a live chat to celebrate and discuss the release of new song “Take Care in Your Stride”.

The song, and accompanying animated video, aim to communicate groundbreaking ecosystem science and economics research in an accessible and inspiring way. It responds to work from Environmental Change Institute researchers Kate Raworth and Professor Yadvindher Malhi, exploring themes of planetary health, unsustainable economic growth, and undervalued parts of the economy, such as parenting.

From 1 – 2 project collaborators will live chat online discussing the role of the arts to communicate environmental research. Follow the hashtag #ThriveNotGrow or visit Environmental Change Institute to join the conversation.

The project was commissioned by Tandem Collective, produced and released by Upcycled Sounds Records, and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

The song and animation will be released on November 28th through all major digital platforms.
