The Green party did an event similar to this within the past 2 years –
Action – Johanna: ask them about it

Action – all: keep updating the google docs on your strand as you go through.

We talked a bit about the structure of the 2nd day.  Mostly about speakers:
inspiring projects round Scotland, suggestions were:
Fife Diet
Group from Perth
Comrie
Growing Communities, Hackney
city-based projects looking at a wide spectrum of changes – vision for cities
Action – all: look for inspiring, relevant projects who might come and present on the 2nd day (could run workshops, not just speak)

We don’t want speakers to dominate the time.  Time for people to interact is most important.

List of things to include in a funding proposal:
venue hire
flyers and poster
leaflets on the day – pledges
travel expenses, speakers fees
food (maybe we could do a soup kitchen ourselves?)
apple press from Royal Ed
creche
seeds
insurance
re-skilling materials
entertainments materials
band
Action – all: think of more things we might need money for.
Action – John: ask Gerri about funding proposal
Action – Eva: make draft booking sheet for community groups
