We are delighted to share the date of the next meeting of the Co-Production Network in South Wales: 21st May in Chepstow, from 13.00 – 16.30pm. (Thank you to the fab team at Monmouthshire County Council for organising and hosting!)

The venue is the Drill Hall, Lower Church Street in Chepstow (NP16 5HJ).

The programme includes a fantastic line-up of local projects with an environment and sustainability slant, from Monmouthshire and Torfaen community groups and council:

  • Vivien Mitchell from Transtition Monmouth talking about Community Climate Champions – a partnership between local transition towns, energy agencies, renewable installers and Friends of the Earth groups working with MCC.
  • Hazel Clatworthy from MCC – Eco-Open Doors – a project of the Community Climate Champions that enables people to visit and chat to homeowners with renewable energy and other sustainable features.
  • Allison Cawley from Melin Homes – Powering up Communities First – works with the community and schools to show how simple behaviour change in home energy usage really can keep pounds in pockets.
  • Kate Burton from Garnsychan Partnership – Keeping good things out of landfill.
  • Simon Morgan of Bron Afon Community Housing – Pollinator Street, Bron Afon’s journey championing pollinators.
  • Nicola Bradbear from Bee Friendly Monmouthshire – an alliance of organisations with concern to improve Monmouthshire’s environment for bees and all insect pollinators.
  • Alison Howard from MCC – Community Food Growing – license to grow.
  • Andy Karron – Gwent Wildlife Trust – local wildlife sites-engaging with landowners to preserve and enhance South East Wales wildlife rich grasslands.

The afternoon will start with Helen Nelson from Cynnal Cymru talking about The Wales We Want, the national conversation underpinning the Future Generations bills. What a line-up! Hope to see you there.

The event is free (thanks to MCC) but reserve your place via Eventbrite.

  1. Hi

    Is the focus of the meeting Co-Production or is it a networking event to share information about community projects and consultation events. I am very interested in Co-Production but it is beginning to feel more like a Community Development network.

    All the Best

  2. Hi Nina, the focus of the meeting is indeed Co-production; the line-up of speakers will be showcasing how co-production has been applied in their projects – all with an environment and sustainability focus on this particular occasion. It is also a networking event as this is a great opportunity to connect and share information. So I guess a bit of both… What would you wish to see at the next co-production network event, that would be helpful to you?
