Facilitation training to prepare for the CC national gathering

I have been organising a facilitation training in Edinburgh. Many people in the group are keen to get involved in facilitating larger meetings, but there seems to be a lack of experience/confidence. The idea is to help build confidence in the lead up to the national Climate Camp gathering in Glasgow. We’ll be putting the agenda together and organising facilitation, so it’s a good opportunity to brush up and gain new skills in advance of this. Below is one of the emails I sent out advertising the training:

Hello everyone,

There will be a large group facilitation training
happening this Monday, March 17th, from 10.30-5pm,
upstairs at the Forest. It is being organised to
skill up Scottish folk in advance of the Climate Camp
gathering in Glasgow on April 5-6, but you do not need
to be involved in the camp to come along.

Rhiannon from Seeds for Change
( will be along to lead the
workshop. I highly recommend it. I went to a
training last spring and it was excellent.

The training is being offered free, though we will be
asking for donations from anyone who can afford it, in
order to cover transportation costs. This will be
less than £5 and is not obligatory if you really don’t
have the cash. I’m also planning on putting together
a soup and salad type lunch for about £2 each.

Please email me if you would like to attend. Knowing
numbers will help us plan the workshop better. Also,
the training is intended for people with some previous
knowledge/experience with facilitation. If this is
not you and you would still like to come, please get
in touch. It is possible that we could do an
introduction to facilitation workshop if there is the



Rhiannon will act as the main facilitator, with Lucy and I (from the Scottish group) taking on the facilitation for a few of the exercises. I have been responsible for the rest of the organisation (booking and preparing the venue, organising accommodation and food for Rhainnon, planning and cooking lunch on the day and publicity).
