What we want to achieve?

Support 200 community groups across Wales by

developing the capacity and capability of these groups

to take action on climate change.

Renew Wales is supported through the Sustainable Steps programme delivered through the Big

Fund and funded by money from dormant bank accounts.

Your turn

I want to ask each of you the following questions and we will go around the room

getting the answers from everyone.

• Introduce yourself

• What organisation are you from?

• What are the aims of your organisation?

• What are the main challenges facing your organisation?

• Do you have any ideas around tackling climate change that your organisation

is interested in?

• Have you delivered or are you delivering any projects around climate change?

15

Your turn

Split into groups, in each group I want a mixture of people who have

delivered climate change projects and people that haven’t. If we’ve identified

themes we can try and split into groups or themes.

1) Those that are looking to develop a new climate change project share

their ideas in more detail with the group and in particular identify some

of the challenges and difficulties they face.

2) Those that have delivered climate change projects can then share what

they have done and in particular how they overcame those barriers, who

helped them, what they would do differently next time.

Summary

• Hopefully this session has given you the chance to do a little Peer to Peer

Mentoring with each other.

• You now have lunch so you can continue any conversations there or speak

to me.

• This is what we are trying to promote through Renew Wales. Standing on

the backs of Giants.

• We don’t need to re-invent the wheel.
