Leading Wellbeing 2016: from theory to practice

Sustainable Brampton supporters are warmly invited to a day of learning and sharing through practice and inspiration, at the University of Cumbria in Ambleside, on April 9th 2016.

Come to explore what others are doing and share your own practice (if you wish), before we finish the day with an evening of live music and a delicious food!

Following on from IFLAS's Leading Wellbeing Festival in July 2015, this day will be all about our own ways of being sustainable, leaders and caretakers of wellbeing.

The day will be organised in the participatory Open Space format in which you will all be invited to offer a break-out session, or just join in.

To read more about how the day will be organised and how you can join in, please follow this link. Some session suggestions are already being proposed here, and you are invited to read about sessions offered by others, and to make your own suggestions.

Mark Lloyd from Sustainable Carlisle will be putting forward a session for the network to join in with, and we will make sure we catch up at breaks throughout the day.

The day event is 9.30am to 5pm and is taking place in the Charlotte Mason building at the University of Cumbria, Ambleside campus. The evening-do is 6pm-12.00am at the Parish Centre.

We have been offered free invites to the day events (please bring your own lunch), and the evening food and entertainment costs just £15.

To book for the day, email your details including the sustainability group/organisation that you are with.

Our vision is for a housing project in the Carlisle area that would combine affordable housing, food growing garden areas and communal facilities ranging from workshops and relaxation areas to entertainment spaces.

The aim is to create a truly affordable housing alternative that goes some way to offering a solution to and breaking free of the current housing crisis especially for those on low incomes.

The project would be low impact, affordable and environmental friendly. It would aim to be self-sufficient and independent using new renewable energy technologies as well as energy efficient designs and older established energy sources such as woodlands.

The project would tie-in to local housing needs whilst using cutting edge designs, waste and water management techniques and work towards total food and fuel independence.

Our aim is to provide a mix of affordable rented and shared ownership homes with some open market housing or space for self-build.

Please get in touch if you would like to be involved.


Please note that the Sustainable Brampton AGM will be held on 27th Apr in the Brampton Community Centre. Calling papers will be issued in due course.
