Coffee House Challenge is an initiative run by the RSA (“working to remove the barriers to social progress” being their slogan) and Starbucks, the coffee retailer. The radical notion is that a bunch of people meet in coffee shop “to talk about community issues they care about and to take action for local change” which, as you’ll know, has never happened in this country before.
Okay, sarcasm to one side, there’s one happening in Birmingham on August 29th at the 114/115 New St Starbucks at 7.30pm. The title is Resource full. Creatively challenged or what?. Details (which I confess I’m struggling to make complete sense of) at that link. All are welcome and it’s free.
