Communities for Future Session #1 – Celebration! How we’ve made a difference in 2020
October 21, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm CEST
We invite you to a virtual feast, celebrating the launch of the Communities for Future program and YOUR valuable work in community-led action groups contributing to a sustainable local and societal transition. This event is meant for displaying and celebrating together as a group of peers the big and small achievements and milestones from European community-led initiatives in 2020. For many of us at the personal level and within our movements, this year has been a tough one. That stresses the importance of turning our focus to what truly inspires us and how we are already making a difference. Now it’s more important than ever to stand together with what we love and what we cherish, feel the power of community and build our bonds stronger.
This event is interactive, participatory, and open for all new and old acquaintances from the community-led movements. As we cannot offer you a feast buffet or a bubbly drink through the screen, we invite you to bring along your favourite dessert and a drink, and dress up in a way that makes you feel celebratory. You are invited to bring along and share your story of joy and success from the past months with a picture, a brief presentation, a poem, a song — or anything that helps us celebrate with you. These accomplishments don’t need to be huge — just think of something that made a difference for you. We will also take time to express gratitude to each other and the important people who have supported us and our networks lately.
As our movement is large, we will offer a limited number of opportunities for presenting your celebratory expressions upfront in the main session. Yet all participants will have the chance to be heard and share in small group sessions. When registering for the event, please share with us if you’d like to present in the main session, so we’ll reserve a time for you.
Please register for the session here and you’ll get the Zoom link immediately to your email.
