On Saturday 9th June at 10am participants will be meeting at the cafe at the Midlands Arts Centre, Edgbaston (see- http://www.macarts.co.uk/?page=visiting/locationMap.html. Buses 45 or 47 from the City Centre); from there they will go the main venue. We will have a climate camp sign in the cafe so people know where to converge. Saturday's main focus will be NVDA training, with guest trainers from Seeds For Change along for the ride. Seeds For Change provide training and support to grassroots campaigners,NGOs, Co-ops and other community groups and organisations in the social sector.
Sunday will be devoted to all the other workshops we want to do, and it is hoped that some of the events will take place in the park if the weather is dry.
