Supporting Wellington Conversations
Recently we've got involved in Wellington Conversations - an initiative to train volunteers to facilitate conversations on topics of interest in Wellington cafe's, community centres and public spaces. If you're keen to contribute as a facilitator, or you just want to find out how you can take part in these conversations about things that matter to Wellington people, here's the link!
The focus is all about building connections and communities, and the programme with the conversations and places they'll be held kicks off in September.
