FSW National Skillshare & Networking weekend Followup

Several members from England attended the event, attracted specifically by the skillshare format (free, families welcome) which is absent in England.

Many thanks to everyone who helped to make the event such a success, especially all the children, for keeping us grounded, and:

  • Melissa Harvey of Dyfi Woodlands for sharing some of the children’s activities from the Centre for Alternative Technology including helping us to build an eco-village
  • Tess Jenkins, from the Forestry Stewardship Council, who taught us their new Moving Carbon game
  • Hazel Wildwood for leading sessions on making a solar oven and growing & caring for young trees
  • Kevin of www.firewok.co.uk for donating a firewok for the members’ raffle

Participants agreed to adopt Climate Change as the focus for our next regional skillshare events, and we have started to fundraise accordingly. All members are welcome to get involved, whether in developing the web-based resources, research and piloting projects, or hosting an event.
