Woodcraft Folk AGM at the Glasgow hub

Event date: 
30 May 2020 - 1:00pm - 8:00pm
Event location: 
260 Bath St. Glasgow G2 4JP

Please join us at Annual Gathering weekend of the 29th May - 31st May, where we celebrate our achievements over the past year, share skills & experiences, elect our General Council and Standing Orders Committee, discuss future plans for the movement, and enjoy each other’s company in true Woodcraft style; alongside planning for Common Ground International Camp, discovering the site, meeting people you will camp with and having lots of fun.

For the first time this year we’re testing the remote participation model with the Glasgow hub and we’d like to invite our members in Scotland and the North to attend. The Glasgow hub will be at 260 Bath St. Glasgow G2 4JP, will be held on Saturday 30th May and will run from 1:00 – 8:00pm. The Glasgow programme will give attendees the knowledge to take part in the AGM and the confidence to discuss and vote on motions and elections, with training and structured workshops, open space discussion and socialising, food and fun for all ages. At 4-6 pm the two events will be linked together through video technology to enable combined debating and voting.

It is free to attend the Glasgow Hub, click here to book yourself a place.

The Glasgow hub is a really exciting opportunity, though there may be challenges, particularly over the time taken to debate a motion across two locations with technological constraints. We ask groups and districts to consider carefully whether their motion needs to be submitted this year because if technology fails us we may not be able to have a full debate on every motion if there are a lot of motions.
