hoping you're feeling better.... just sent you an invite to listen to that podcast I was putting together and offer any response to the edit (!) in the new 'resilience' group on fieryspirits...
thanks and best for now
Welcome! FierySpirits is for activists and professionals who are building vibrant, resilient rural communities. Tell us a little about why you'd like to join?
I suggested having a community of practice as opposed to a centre of excellence when that idea was first mooted. Community of practice is THE way of working if we are serious about community development...which I know we are! So I am looking forward to see what develops here between us all.
About Me (areas of expertise/interest I can share)
I work across the north wales region developing and delivering different forms of learning for community development activities. In Carnegie I am developing Learning Community Networks with 3 pilot communities in the region. I love my family and being a part of community development and action. Just about to start a multilateral Grundtvig project with partners across Europe based on rural older learners and valuing their skills and knowledge and how that can contribute to rural community development.
