Other News - May 2019

Press Space
We now have a “Press Space” which is for student journalists to come and discuss our campaigns. This takes place between 7pm and 7:30pm before the monthly meeting.

Campaign Stalls
We are planning for events through the summer. We will book stalls for the Sharrow Festival on Saturday 6 July (set up 10-12, festival 12-6pm); Low Edges Sunday 11 August (Festival from 12-5pm), Volunteers will be needed to help run the stalls. There is a possibility we could run more stalls if there is transport available for the gazebo. Let the group know if you might be able to help.

Action Network
We discussed the current opportunities that were highlighted at Action Network training – there is potential to use a new platform for communication, advertising events, on line petitions etc and potential for tailoring information sharing etc. There is a need for at least two people to be trained to support its use and link to our other communication strategy using social media but we will explore using it for the Plastics campaign.
