About Our Connect Events
Our Connect events provide an open platform, bringing together residents, communities, local businesses, charities and city stakeholders to listen and support community-initiated projects that help Exeter work towards its ambition to be carbon neutral by 2030.
Each Connect event will be framed around a key theme in which we invite change makers to get involved by presenting their community-led projects to share knowledge and inspire future community initiatives in other wards across the city.
Our Connect events currently take place online and are hosted through the Zoom platform.
Starting with five minute pitches and moving to tabling breakout rooms where presenters can take questions and hold discussion about their projects we hope this format offers a creative and collaborative environment and fosters a vibrant community of Exeter change makers.
Exeter City Futures’ Connect Events are supported by The National Lottery Community Fund.
If you need more information about the event, or are interested in presenting but would like to discuss your idea and how to deliver a presentation online, please contact us at email@example.com.
