As an alternative to Black Friday, Vålerenga Community Centre invites you to learn about creative reuse and redesign. Eline Medbøe from ReLOVE will be our tutor.

Register your participation before November 15. to Kirsten Paaby - paaby.kirsten@gmail.com

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.
