Understanding Depression: Learning From Lived Experience is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that will give insight into the day-to-day lived experiences of people with depression, and the family and friends who support them. This course will encourage people in all walks of life to talk about mental health, engaging those with a lived experience to be in conversations and discussions about recovery. Enrol today!

5. Haystacks Solar Garden 

Grown out of a desire to make renewables accessible for everyone and enabling communities more control over their energy future, the Haystacks Solar Garden is intended to demonstrate that community-owned and small-scale solar farms are viable, replicable and provide multiple economic and community benefits. A solar garden is a similar concept to a community garden, but instead of growing veggies members get to harvest renewable electricity. People who want to install solar on their rooftop but aren’t able to can join a Solar Garden and receive the benefits from collectively owned renewable electricity.
