Would you like to facilitate a workshop on a issue that you are passionate about or a skill you want to share with us? Is there an issue or skill you would like us to do a workshop on?

We are developing issue/skills networks to provide the space for innovative ideas that influence government and practical solutions for our communities, but most importantly enable you to meet other members and help shape what we do in the areas you are interested in. Email
