Wimblecomm Connect, our program of monthly networking Zoom sessions for Wimbledon Community Association members, was first established during the Covid-19 pandemic. Sessions aim to provide an informal platform where you can meet the Team at Wimblecomm, network with other community groups/venues, access support, share stories, and learn together.
With this we also offer a program of webinars/workshops which address a range of themes, including Green Merton, Diversity and Inclusion, Mental Wellbeing, and Social Media/Digital Marketing for small charities and community organisations.
Wimblecomm Connect sessions and webinars are aimed at members and partners of Wimbledon Community Association and are still free.
Not a member yet? If you are a Merton based Community Group/Organisation or run a Community Venue, please take a look at our membership options here. To subscribe to one of our plans please select your preferred option and follow the online instructions. Once subscribed, you can add your Group or Venue to our Community Group or Spaces for Hire directory and let us help you promote your work/services, and/or space for hire on Wimblecomm and via our social media channels.
CONNECT in February
Our February CONNECT session will take place on Friday 4 February from 12.30pm to 1.30pm on Zoom.
We hope you/your teams will join us for a workshop delivered by the Energy Team at Sustainable Merton, followed by a Q&A and round table discussion.
Energy: Mobilising our communities to navigate the energy crisis and address the climate emergency
Rising energy prices have left many Merton residents in a state of fuel poverty. As local leaders, we have an important role to play in helping our communities reduce their energy bills while staying warm. At the same time, energy used to heat and power buildings accounts for 81% of Merton’s greenhouse gas inventory. Therefore, we must also help instil our communities with the knowledge and resources to reduce their carbon footprints.
In this workshop, Sustainable Merton Energy Champion Anca will help you understand the link between the energy and climate crisis and provide a wide range of actions, big and small, your communities can take to reduce energy consumption and help the planet.
We’d be grateful if you could RSVP by Email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 pm on 3 February 2022. You can of course join us on the day if your plans change.
