DISCUSSION GROUPS

Global Concerns
We meet to discuss a wide range of topics that are of contemporary global concern. At every meeting we strive to have interesting topics: presentations are given by our own members, or occasionally by external persons. Sometimes we have a film to watch and sometimes we visit an organisation or place relevant to the wide variety of issues we are interested in.
Members are encouraged to select, research and informally present a topic that will stimulate discussion. We discuss subjects that reflect the interests, knowledge and experience from within our very international group.

Philosophy
This group is intended for those who seek a deeper understanding of philosophical issues related to humanity, scientific theories, evolution, spirituality, technology and art from a theoretical basis and with a scientific method. At each meeting we will consider a text selected for the occasion and approach it in all its amplitude, ranging from the general to the particular. We meet on the second Wednesday of each month in different locations.

Cancer Support

Women who wish to talk to a friendly, sympathetic member about dealing with cancer of any type can contact us and receive a reply by email. They will be put in touch with one of our members who is best able to help them. In addition, we are now collaborating with the AWCZ with a joint support group for women who have had cancer in the past or who are still receiving treatments. We will meet on the 1st Wednesday of each month at the AWCZ Clubhouse. You do not need to be a member of either club to join these meetings.
