3rd Thursday of the month
Leader: Jo Wright
We hope to return to meeting in person by September, in my house. Meanwhile we will continue with Zoom meetings. We all suggest the topics and then vote on them.
We choose the most popular to discuss and someone volunteers to lead and introduce the subject each month. Here is what we intend to discuss:
May 20th – Should we change the wage structure in Britain?
June 17th – Do high tuition fees and unpaid internships mean the younger generations are being exploited?
15th July – “Fairness for Women” Why can’t a woman feel safe when she goes out or is our society just getting less safe generally? Considering knife crime etc, is it as risky for men?
19th August – Summer break.
16th September – How can we help people struggling in underprivileged regions of the world lead better lives? Should the foreign aid budget be cut or raised?
21st October – Have we become a throwaway society and accepting of the litter associated with it, or are we changing our attitudes and trying to live a more sustainable way?
18th November – What types of jobs should be done by volunteers? Is volunteering always a good thing? How does it effect the unemployed?
16th December – Newspaper Clippings – bring along something interesting from a publication, which we can discuss briefly. Topical or amusing, your choice.
21st January 2022 –“Statues”- What should we do with our troublesome monuments? Should we apologise for the actions that our country did in the last?
17th February – How much does childhood experiences shape the adult? What constitutes a good childhood? Or do you think the experiences in later life play as big or a bigger part to shape a person as an adult?
