Education and Networking Group

Welcome to the page of the FADA Education and Networking Group!

Introduction

The aim of our group is to help educate both FADA members and the local public. This includes both theoretical education (like talks about peak oil and climate change) and practical education (like running practical skills courses). Another one of the group's objectives is to network with other local groups.  

If you would like to join us, you are very welcome to contact us via FADA's mail or come to one of FADA's plenary meetings.

Current list of projects

  • Adult Education Courses
  • Organise speakers for talks within FADA (once a month)
  • Organise speakers for public talks (around 3-4 times a year)
  • Set up a FADA library
  • Network with other community groups
  • Organise introduction of new FADA members
  • Liaise with schools to organise transition year projects or other projects in themes relevant to FADA
  • Organise public screenings of documentaries and films with relevant context

Courses organised by FADA

The group is currently working on organising some short workshops and long term courses in the Newbridge area.

If you have any comments to make or any ideas you would like to share with us on this, please don't hesitate to contact us.
