When: Tue, 26/9, 19:00
Where: Zoom: register in advance by clicking here
Contact: Mary Stewart Burgher (30506356; emessbe@yahoo.com) for further info

Join FAWCO members from around the world in an open, supportive and frank discussion of gender and pronouns hosted by Meredith Mani, Chair of FAWCO’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) team. This discussion is geared towards informing members and fostering dialogue about how and why we use pronouns and gender issues/norms that are prevalent in society.

This moderated discussion is open to all members and all viewpoints, and can help create a basis for individual and club discussions. This meeting is an informal discussion among members. The views expressed will be personal and not necessarily those of the DEIB team or of FAWCO. Please remember that FAWCO is a non-partisan organization. We expect participants to communicate and conduct themselves with respect, tolerance and consideration for others.

AWC Green Team

AWC Denmark’s Green Team is an activity that started up in September 2022. GREEN TEAM SUGGESTION FOR SEPTEMBER 2023: This is a repeat of last September’s suggestion, because I received so much good feedback on it… no pun intended! Consider establishing a routine for meat-free days each month or week. Meat-free take-out could be a way of getting started, as well as trying new dishes. Try downloading the App Happy Cow on your phone. Happy Cow users contribute photos and reviews of their meat-free meal experiences worldwide. There’s much more out there than you can imagine!
