The Science Museum are offering free training to help Woodcraft run science activities and workshops. There will be a few "modules" of training early in the day, followed by activities in the museum itself.
Woodcraft Folk leaders of all ages came from all directions to Training for Leaders Old and New, from February 22nd - 24th. It was one of the biggest training events in recent Woodcraft history, comprising 69 people, a three-strand programme of workshops and a brilliant range of volunteers and staff from all over England. Needless to say, a great time was had by all.
The Co-operative Group are just about to launch their first youth board, The Co-operative Young Members' Board. This is a great step towards empowering young members to influence the Co-operative and an opportunity for young Woodcraft Folk to offer ideas and advice to the organisation that has supported so many Woodcraft Folk groups over the years!
The 8th March is International Women's Day, a time to remember the sacrifices and bravery of women who have fought tirelessly for a better world, whilst also recognising that the fight for liberation is far from over. From the Ford Dagenham strikes in 1968 to the women of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, women have increasingly made steps towards equality and been part of the struggle for a world free from oppression.
