2nd Meeting - Towards a Nurturing Society through Social Enterprises & Organisations

Hi everyone,

Please note the change of meeting address to be at the Christie Walk Community Room at 101-3 Sturt Street, Adelaide at 5:30pm start. The following is a repeat of the initial invite. for those who may not have received the invite and wish to register.

This is a follow up network event to those who were invited to attend our recent open space gathering “Towards a Nurturing Society and how we can collaborate to create this through social enterprises and organisations”.

We found the gathering provided a wonderful, inspirational and exciting opportunity for those present to express their ideas of how to address this theme for the future

Below is a list of the various projects identified in the previous open space breakout sessions. If there are no projects on the list that you are passionate about or interested in, please feel free to add to the list. As requested by everyone, we have organized a subsequent meeting to consider in detail which projects can proceed and to set up the project teams to get started. For those who were unable to attend the Open Space event, we would still very much welcome your input into any of the listed projects where you have a particular interest.

The second meeting is scheduled for 5:30pm start on Friday 9 June 2017 at The Christie Walk Community Room (Free event with gold coin donation). Tea and coffee provided. Could you please register your attendance here on Eventbrite.

If you know someone who you reckon would also be enthused by this next meeting feel free to invite them to register their interest.

Please reply by email if you have any queries or would like more information. Do let us know if you are not interested in the proposed network and would like your email deleted from the email list.
