Community Knowledge Share

As human beings, we have an innate ability to build a fascinating range of skills, knowledge and experiences throughout our lives. Through our work, personal relationships, the places we live, our personal histories, our challenges, our triumphs, our observations, our hobbies, our passions, lessons learned and passing interests…they all add up to create an incredible skills set that isn’t readily recognised in monetary or measurable terms, but can be just as valuable as structured learning.
We all have something to offer. When we share that experience…those skills….the knowledge….we have the potential to have a massive impact on other people’s lives as we impart what we know and  let the passion for what we’ve learned take them on the journey of discovery with us.
Do you have an idea to share? It doesn’t have to be about learning itself, it could be;
  • an intersting biography
  • knowledge on local history
  • a personal interest
  • a hobby
  • a way of looking at the world
  • ideas on how to transform the social care system
  • a new way of learning itself
  • arguments for keeping old ways of learning
  • an academic project
  • Sharing your ‘life hacks’! (tips on an easier life)
Basically, whatever YOU think would be of interest to others!
