At the Schumacher North Annual Gathering last Saturday, the final session was devoted to exploring new directions for the group over the coming months. A number of exciting ideas emerged, including the creation of a new forum in Bradford to promote sustainable food growing, plans for a Yorkshire Energy Futures Conference later this year, a group to explore how to more effectively create change, and a project to llok at how we can make more effective use of significant economic and social data.
A follow-up meeting to take forward these ideas and plan other activities will take place on Monday 18th May, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Ebor Court, Skinner Street, Leeds LS1 4ND. Please join us if you are able to help with planning these activities.
The regular Hub meetings (about every 6 weeks) will now replace the former Schumacher North Hub Group; the new meetings are open to everyone, but in cases of disagreement, voting rights will be limited to Schumacher North members.
