Community Development Programme

A series of action-provoking events and training useful for anyone looking to be a more active citizen within their community.

Community Development Programme

Our Community Development Programme is an educational programme for our members and wider community. Our aim is to provide an engaging, varied and thought-provoking experience for attendees and to build capacity within our membership and the wider community. We will be updating the calendar over the coming months as new events are confirmed – so watch this space.

If you missed an event or just curious, we have a selection of past recorded events available here.

As Covid-19 restrictions continue to remain in place, we are running our series of events in an online format until further notice.

Upcoming Events

Catch-up with earlier in the series

Ongoing Member Sessions

Fáilte Sessions

Our Failte Session is a welcome session for all of our new members. Attendees can learn about how our co-op works and the history of the wider co-operative movement. Fáilte Sessions will take place throughout the year in 2021. The dates will appear in our newsletter and on our website. 
Please check back soon for the next date.

Weekly Online meetings

Every Saturday members of Dublin Food Co-op are meeting up virtually to have a chat about a particular topic of interest to them. You don’t need to be familiar with it beforehand and everyone is welcome! Contact info@dublinfood.coop by Friday evening if you’d like to be added to the mailing list. Members discuss topics they suggest themselves each week, including things like environmental issues, co-operative and social justice movements and how DFC policy reflects these issues. The discussion is a great place to meet new members,  especially at a time when we can’t meet in person.
