Last year, on the eve of the Scottish referendum, the Positive Money team travelled to Ambleside in the Lake District. With anticipation (and some trepidation), we put the final touches to the the design of the weekend and waited for 22 participants of the first Positive Money retreat to arrive.
Over the next two and a half days the sun shined, new friendships were struck and a lot was achieved. The group shared ideas about how to grow and develop the Positive Money network; discussed campaign breakthroughs, strategy and the plan for year ahead; learnt new communication and leadership skills and were joined by Professor Jem Bendell who delivered a talk community currencies and the importance of collaboration.
Alongside this, we made time for walking in the beautiful Lake District, cooking and eating together, debating current political events – and making music! Read more and watch the video from last year here.
It was a very special weekend. We are going to do it all over again. Would you like to join us?
