Energy Collaborate Group Meeting @ Makespace
Nov 19 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

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
Online Live Chat:Using Art to Communicate Environmental Research @ Online
Nov 28 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
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.
