Santesau Celtaidd – y fam, y forwyn, a’r ffeminist
Talk in Welsh by Pegi Talfryn
Friday, 26th March 2021, 7:00 PM
Traditionally, the woman plays a secondary role in the stories of saints. She is the mother, or virgin who is supportive of the main male saints. But some women blazed their own trails and created a future for themselves beyond these expectations.

This talk will discuss the history of some of the main Celtic female saints and will include a major element of storytelling and new interpretations of the old stories. A PowerPoint will accompany the talk to aid Welsh learners.

An experimental simultaneous translation service will be available on request for viewers who have not yet learned Welsh, provided that they register for the talk at least 24 hours before it is due to start. Cwmulus wishes to thank Menter Iaith Sir Ddinbych for the support which has made this experiment possible.

Friday, 23rd April 2021, 7:00 PM
The Scouting Movement was founded by Robert Baden-Powell in 1907 when his book “Scouting for Boys” was published. Lesley Bordoli will take us on a short history of Scouting from the founding of the movement which emphasises outdoor activities including camping, woodcraft, aquatics to today’s all-embracing International World Organisation of the Scout Movement which now includes activities such as DIY, Computing and working in the community. In the UK the Scouts welcome around half a million 6 – 25 year-olds giving them the skills they need to go to School, College, University as well job interviews and skills in becoming confident members of society. Lesley will also speak about VIPs who are involved in the Movement as well as her own personal Scouting journey.

Community Action on Climate Change
Talk in English by Grant Peisley
Friday, 21st May 2021, 7:00 PM
People throughout Wales and beyond have been coming together in their communities to cooperate on developing renewable energy projects over the past decade and more.  With some 175 community energy projects in Wales, and in the absence of any meaningful action at government levels, community enterprises are beginning to look at how else they can contribute to tackling climate change.

This talk by Grant Peisley will explain more about community energy, look at what groups in Wales have achieved so far and look at how these same groups are now turning their attention to climate change, from the ground up.

Grant is a Director of Community Energy Wales and founder of Datblygiadau Egni Gwledig (DEG), YnNi Teg, YnNi Newydd, YnNi Llŷn and YnNi Lleu. DEG has worked with over 60 communities in northwest Wales on energy projects and Grant will be sharing their stories and inspiring us all to take action.
