July Online Community Café – Environmental Impacts of COVID-19

Standard

Hello!

Thank you for your feedback about our new Online Community Café Dialogues. Many of you are keen to continue the conversation about politics and community in our new online forum. We are now meeting on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00pm. The online café will only be one hour.

Our next Online Community Café is Wednesday 1 July 7:00pm. Our topic is: Environmental Impacts of COVID-19.

As we return to pre-COVID conditions what has changed for you and your relationship with the environment? We will consider small and large changes to our everyday life and what that means for the environment. Single use items have become much more common and acceptable. International travel has stopped but local travel has become much more individual. How can we protect ourselves and the environment in this new socially distanced world? Come share your view with us.

Community Café Dialogues go online

Standard

To all our loyal Community Café followers,

after two successful smaller trials we have decided to move our Community Café Dialogues programme online. This allows us to organise further Community Cafés in a time where social distancing and prevention of the spread of COVID-19 are paramount.

We also hope that this will provide opportunities for new participants to join the Community Café Dialogues without having to come to inner Brisbane. We are currently redesigning the process and will send out an email soon asking for your input for exciting topics and issues to discuss this year.

Please make sure that your email address is up-to-date and watch out for our announcements soon. See you at the next Café in July 2020!
