Come and join young and older district, regional and national Woodcraft Folk committee representatives for an exciting weekend of FREE training and networking alongside Development Conference.

What is 'Bored Meeting' training?'

The Woodcraft Folk believes in equality, respect and open and shared decision making among children and young people and adults. Local groups, districts and projects begin this journey that leads some to wider participation across the organisation, including at national levels through various committees, teams and working groups.

'Bored Meeting' is a free Woodcraft Folk training course for for those young people and adults who participate in Woodcraft Folk committees. It includes a series of workshops to help those of us involved in such groups to think about our roles and the values, knowledge and skills needed to help us work well together and make change happen. Activities will be participative and include a mixture of small and thematic group work. The training offers the chance to reflect on how we all work together, and support each other on committees so we get the best out of everybody. It's also a great opportunity to meet new people and share ideas with each other - and other members at Development Conference.

Who should attend?

The course is aimed at Venturers, DFs and adults. Please come along if:

  • you are a district, regional and national committee member (those over 25 years should bring a young member with them)
  • you are considering standing for election / taking up a role during 2011

Committees can include groups from district camp committees to General Council. The course may be particularly useful if you're new to your role, but old hands are very welcome too.
