What are your opinions on gentrification in Brixton? Do you think food waste could be managed more effectively? Why do you think homelessness is such a prevalent issue?
Be Enriched and Compliments of The House have organised a cross-generational “Great Debate” for local people to discuss a variety of important issues and their local impact in Brixton. They are specifically advertising for ages 16-19 and 55+ to attend.
In the first of a series of debates, on Monday 18th March, discussion will be focussed on the gentrification of Brixton- if you’ve got something to say they want you to come along to the event space at 3Space International House. Those aged 16-19 are asked to arrive at 4:30 and those 55+ at 5pm. The debate will take place from 5:30-6:30, followed by refreshments and networking opportunities. To register your interest please sign up to the event here.
Both charities are based on the Community Initiatives floor of 3Space International House. Compliments of the House is a food redistribution charity working in Brixton Village and Be Enriched is a youth and community charity, one of their projects is Brixton People’s Kitchen, and they have also recently opened a new cafe in Vauxhall. If you are interested in volunteering with either organisation please contact them through their websites or follow them on twitter @be_enriched.
