WEDNESDAY 27 JANUARY 2021 7.30 – 9.00pm. The Herefordshire 2030 Project

Herefordshire, with a population of some 200,000 people is one of the UK’s most attractive counties. It contains a great cathedral city and beautiful countryside. Like the rest of the UK, it also has many problems – economic, social and environmental – many of which have worsened during austerity, and now the impacts of Covid-19 and other possible impacts from Brexit. The aim of the 2030 Project is to develop a clear, compelling and fact-based picture of how Herefordshire can be fairer, greener and more prosperous than today. The progress of the project now shows the actions that will need to be taken to achieve that progress, and how they can be realised. And it is in the process of developing a practical plan to engage those who will need to make it happen.

Mark Thomas and Perry Walk will talk about the 99% organisation’s Herefordshire 2030 project. The aim of the project is to develop a clear, compelling and fact-based picture of how Herefordshire in 2030 can be fairer, greener and more prosperous than today. It will also show the actions that will need to be taken to achieve that progress, and how they can be realised. And it will develop a practical plan to engage those who will need to make it happen. Mark and Perry will ask you to input your ideas and invite you to join the project.

WEDNESDAY 10 FEBRUARY 2021 Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED).

CAMFED supports marginalized girls to learn, thrive and lead change. We catalyze the power of the most vulnerable girls and young women to create the future they imagine — for themselves, for their communities, and for Africa. Our impact increases exponentially through the Association of young women educated with CAMFED’s support. Together, we multiply the number of girls in school, and accelerate their transition to livelihoods and leadership.
