Network Meetings September – December 2021

Hi everyone.

Hope you are well and safe, and enjoying the Summer. Short update on Network Meeting Dates from September 2021 – December 2021.

September Network Meeting

Our next network meeting is on 9th of September. We have created space for discussions on re-opening and lessons. You will have the opportunity to share learning, good practice, issues and concerns and get support from peers.

We have two guest Speakers joining us, Bob Sherman from the Low Carbon Warwickshire Network and Caspar Kennerdale from ClearCommunity Web.

Bob’s presentation focuses on Energy Initiatives for Community Libraries. The buildings that Community Managed Libraries occupy come in all shapes, sizes and ages, but almost all could reduce their energy consumption, save money, and make a contribution towards tackling Climate Change. Bob will give examples of recent projects aimed at reducing the carbon footprint of community buildings in Warwickshire, explain why this is an important initiative, and provide suggestions for funding sources to make this possible.

Caspar will share his experiences and learning from helping seniors, vulnerable adults and carers to get devices and build confidence using the internet to help them stay in contact with each other, access critical services and support networks. There will also be further information about his newly developed volunteer training program for community organizations looking to provide a digital inclusion programme.

The meeting on 9 September is online, and starts at 10.30am, chaired by David Smith. To book visit: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/cml-network-meetings-tickets-167485310071
