With a focus on consumption, climate-smart food, urban farming, and green meeting places, Vålerenga community centre invites you to its neighbourhood café. Workshop activities will be combined with artistic expression, and good conversation.

With baskets, scissors and knives we'll take a trip outdoors along the Alna River and find local wild food to take with us. In our community kitchen we'll prepare a meal from what we found.

Our guide will be Anne Siri Brandrud.

Registrations can be sent to Kirsten Paaby - paaby.kirsten@gmail.com - before April 23.

About the Neighbourhood Café

The neighbourhood cafés will be a combination of small inspiration talks, practical activities, and social get-togethers They will be based on the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals – can they be anchored locally?

The following topics have been set up for 2019:
• Repair and clothes swap
• From rubbish to musical instruments
• Vegetable fermentation
• Using leftovers and home composting

Vålerenga community centre, in cooperation with other organisations and groups, wants to "put Vålerenga on the map" and, as a neighbourhood, present its contribution to a green, sustainable city.

The community centre's 30-year history is part of a larger story about the importance of community action, local identity, and a sense of belonging. The centre has been run on a voluntary basis ever since it opened. It has provided a base for friendships and networks across generations and has become an arena for learning, getting to know people, and feeling a sense of belonging. These experiences will provide the basis for the operation of the neighbourhood cafés.

The centre has a large, friendly meeting hall on the ground floor where the neighbourhood cafés will be held.
