Waste No Time
Update: Waste No Time (The 2nd Course) commences September 2017
The Waste No Time Project began a few years ago at a discussion around the changes in our local Councils with a comment that most people are not greatly concerned about the changes. In fact, the one thing that people do care about, wherever they live and whoever they are, is that their bins get lifted. At that moment the idea for a people’s conversation project tin the Causeway Coast & Glens Council was born - with the principle that we need to start with what matters to people and exploring why we sometimes 'bin our voices'.
The project is a partnership between five organisations: Beyond Skin, Building Communities Resource Centre, Corrymeela, Charo Lanao-Madden, Rural Community Network and Desert Fish. Funded by Building Change Trust.
Since January 2016 across 20 towns and villages in the Causeway Coast & Glens area the WNoT team have hosted pop-up democracy café’s, street theatre, residentials, exhibitions, workshops, presentations and recently creating a forum theatre production.
