This months social is looking at the skills we can develop as individuals to help us to do more good in the world. Talking to each other about which skills could be valuable to us based on our values and preferences and once we’ve decided what we want to learn, how do we go about learning them.

Bring along stories of the skills you have found helpful and how you’ve built them over time whether it’s online resources, local clubs or a life changing book.
