Go Dundee have a great new website where you can check out what they are up to. The following gives some background information.
Background to Go Dundee
At Scotland's Tipping Point the participants were involved in geographical groups. This allowed people from different sectors to meet up and discuss with others from their geographical area. The people from Dundee who met up at the conference resolved to do something in the city. A series of events under the banner of Go Dundee have now taken place.
The Centre has organised two events with Go Dundee in 2008. The first was in January and was an evening lecture given by the celebrated Harvard University psychology lecturer Dr Tal Ben-Shahar who talked at Positive Psychology, Leadership and creating positive cities. The event sold out and over 300 people attended. Click here for further information on the Tal Ben-Shahar event. The second event was held in June and featured Carol Craig, from the Centre, talking about the power of optimism and a local band called the Hazey Janes. There are lots of pics of both events on the Go Dundee website.
