Clann Credo’s hugely successful series of online events – Changing Landscapes – is back with two new events!
These free online events focus on new opportunities for communities arising from the huge increase in remote working and working from home.
 
The Covid-19 pandemic has propelled forward the move towards remote working and opened up the possibility of alternatives to time-consuming commutes and office-based working practices.
 
We have a great line up of speakers with unique insights into the latest trends and developments in remote working, as well as inspirational stories from trailblazing community organisations.
 
This event will respond to these questions: 

• What makes a successful community organisation?

• Could your community project benefit from the skills of remote workers?
 
25 years of working with over 1,500 community organisations, sports clubs, social enterprises and sports clubs across Ireland has taught us that volunteer skills and capacity is the key factor that sets successful community organisations above the rest. However, we also know that finding volunteers with specific skills can be challenging.
 
One year on from the March 2020 directive to work from home, we look at the growing popularity and viability of remote working and the opportunities that this brings for the rejuvenation of volunteer-led organisations.
 
Rose Barrett from Grow Remote join us for this event and have a unique perspective on how remote workers, including former commuters, those returning to their home communities and those striking out in new communities are seeking to (re)connect with their local community and contribute to community wellbeing (and their own wellbeing).  Grow Remote is a not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to enable us to work, live and participate locally.
 
Henry Healy, Director of Moneygall Development Association will share his experiences of harnessing the right skills for community projects; how to decide which skills you need most, and how to track down the right people.
 
We look forward to meeting you online!
