Do you have a great idea for a community project? Do you want to make a difference in your community? Are you looking to meet people who share your vision? Do you want to help shape the community and environment you live in?
Then the Connected Communities Program is designed for you. Council is callingfor residents who are passionate and motivated about their community.
The Connected Communities Program will be delivered over 20 hours by experienced facilitators from Community Praxis Co-op. The focus of the workshops are on creating strong connections within communities to develop community initiatives and projects, whilst building the resources, capacity, resilience and leadership to creatively engage with your community. The workshops will be delivered weekly throughout June and July on a day selected by participants. Each workshop will run for a duration of four hours, with refreshments provided.
The workshop content will build three core learnings through interactive participation including:
- Exploring the kind of community residents want to live in;
- Exploring what blocks us from creating the community we want to live in; and
- Learning skills and methods to connect with others in our communities to create new initiatives.
