Event Description

Please note that, given the Covid-enforced postponement, we'll arrange some kind of get-together - whether virtual or in person - before our Bore Place gathering. So watch this space!

Your invitation:  Over our residential weekend Open Source Thinking (OST) 2021 (now 2022) Gathering, we can challenge and support each other creatively to return, refreshed, as recharged advocates and resources for effective action and change.  We are compressing our Gathering into a weekend, to provide a space and respite for busy people.  We’ll start with lunch at 12.30 pm on Friday 18 March 2022, and close at 1.00 pm on Sunday 20 March 2022 with a sandwich lunch.  You are welcome to join us.

How we will be together:  This is our 5th annual OST Gathering, supported by AMED.  Working together to create a temporary community is at the heart of what we do.  We’ll all share in the preparation and clearing up of our meals (all vegetarian), and in co-creating and co-facilitating our ‘agenda’.  A bonus is that we’ll be able to source fresh produce for our meals from the Bore Place farm - and there is a dishwasher!

Our venue:  Bore Place shares our OST vision of practising living and working sustainably through practical projects, and cooperating with others to share and inspire change.  There are 2 shower rooms, 2 bathrooms and 3 WCs between all the bedrooms over 2 floors. All are shared.

Remaining accommodation: With a maximum capacity of 19 people, we still have 3 x single rooms, each @ £145, and 3 x triple-bedded rooms sharing with others, @ £105 per person who is sharing.  All the contributions include full board and wine with evening meals.

How to get there:  For full details, please click here.

Payment:  If you would like to join us for OST2022, we’ll need a £50 deposit per person.  Please note that the deposit is non-refundable, as we work on a very tight shoestring.

Keeping in touch about OST in the interim:  To avoid causing 'Zoom-out', we’ll offer everyone the chance to join an informal, virtual conversation catch-up before Spring 2022, just to stay in touch.  So watch this space!

Next steps:  Please contact Alison @ alisonpia@live.co.uk as soon as you can if you would like to reserve a place for yourself, saying what kind of accommodation you’d prefer. (We’re applying a first come, first served principle). Alison will then let you know how to pay your deposit.  Please, also, feel free to contact Alison or Bob @ bob@amed.org.uk if you’d like to chat first before deciding.  And do circulate this invitation to your friends and other contacts if you think they might be interested. You can also let us know if you would like us to send them an invitation on your behalf.

Please join us if you can, and/or let us have your suggestions and ideas.   We’re looking forward to (re-)engaging with you at Bore Place in Spring 2022.  

With very best wishes from your OST2022 Hosting Team.   Alison, Bob and Andy. www.opensourcethinking.org.uk

Uncertainties facing young people globally: an intergenerational issue

A new OECD report looks at the uncertainties facing young people stemming from global trends such as ageing populations, digitalisation, rising inequalities and climate change – now exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has added new challenges around jobs, income and mental health.

Governance for Youth, Trust and Intergenerational Justice: Fit for ... finds that youths in OECD countries have, on average, less income at their disposal than previous young generations and they are 2.5 times more likely to be unemployed than the middle-aged. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased anxiety among young people about their future prospects in an uncertain job market. Only 45% of youths across OECD countries express trust in their government

The report analyses laws, policies and governance tools across 42 countries and the EU geared at securing a better future for today’s youths. It looks at how investment in youth policies is paying off, at how youths are represented in public life and at how governments can address inequalities among young people.
