This meeting followed a similar format as the last meeting, the aim being to give the community a chance to discuss what actions
we want to take forward and identifying who is willing to be involved. Once again we want to get into smaller groups so that everyone has a chance to contribute. Possible discussion topics that were noted last time, but not discussed were:
Political Engagement - holding government and authorities to account
Alternatives to waste
There will be an opportunity to propose additional topics before we break out into the discussion groups.
The proposed Agenda is:
7:00 -7:15 - Welcome and Summary of Progress to Date
7:15-7:30 - Identification of topics for discussion groups

These groups have been set up on the forum for people to join and discuss activities together. The Plan is to report back at the next meeting (13 July). So good to see all our concerns and energy taking place and moving into collective action. Thanks for everyone’s input let’s keep going.
