Join us for a new kind of CLH monthly event: online led discussions of current topics. Each event will start at 7:30 pm when we will meet on Zoom.
For “Charitable Giving: Who Benefits?” we will start by playing a video on Zoom. Because the quality of streaming on Zoom is not perfect, I encourage you to have this link to the video to hand on the night (you can also watch it ahead of time): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaN6ibm5r-I&t=372s
To discuss the pros and cons of charitable giving, we will go into 3 consecutive Breakout Rooms each for 15 to 20 minutes.
This part of the evening will take an hour to an hour and a half.
After the discussion, the evening turns into a social, as if we were meeting at a pub after a talk. During this discussion we will welcome suggestions of future topics and possible modifications of the process.
If you have not used Zoom before, we recommend you download the phone or desktop app prior to the event and have a look at the Zoom guide for your device/computer. You do not need a Zoom account to join this event but you can register for a free account.
We have successfully held Watch Along, Book Group and socials using Zoom. It takes some getting used to but very quickly discussions started and conversation flowed. However, this might be the first time for some participants so please be patient with everyone on the night. If you have any technical difficulties prior to the event, leave a comment below. and we will try to help out. During the event, you can also leave the ‘room’ you have been assigned and talk to the host.
Whether you’re non-religious, questioning your previously-held beliefs, or just an open-minded person looking to mingle, these events could be just right for you. You can expect to meet interesting people, network with community activists, and have a lively discussion on an issue of the day.
We encourage dialogue, debate and sharing of information at our events but ask people to keep their interactions cordial. Any views expressed are those of the individual sharing them and may not reflect those of the CLH.
