Barry Golding will cover the history\, development and global spread of men's sheds\, and identify innovations\, principles\, emerging issues and potential of men's sheds in Scotland based on recent research evidence. The session follows on from the 2.00pm launch (in the same venue) of the book Men learning through life\, published by NIACE and edited by Barry Golding\, Dr Rob Mark (from University of Strathclyde) and Dr Annette Foley\, which you are also separately wamly invited to attend: if you are coming also to the launch\, please RSVP to janice.macwhirther@strath.ac.uk Professor Barry Golding Barry Golding is a Patron of the Australian Men's Sheds Association and widely published international research Professor in the field of men's learning and wellbeing at Federation University in Ballarat\, Victoria\, Australia. In 2012 Barry received the Australian Men's Sheds Association ‘Ted Donnelly Award’ for his Outstanding Contribution to the Shed Movement. Background to men’s sheds in Glasgow and Scotland In recent years men's sheds on the Australian model have spread into Scotland\, first in Aberdeen\, and there are now around 15 Scottish sheds either open or in the planning stages. Barry notes that men in the city of Glasgow have the lowest life expectancy in the UK\, with men living to an average age of 71 and women to 78 (2010 data)\, and for some Glasgow suburbs even lower (compared to 78 and 82 for the whole of UK). As in Australia\, there would appear to be a strong case in Scotland for grassroots action to address the social determinants affecting men's heath. The great thing about men's sheds it that they tend to spring up where the community and men recognise they are most needed. Please forward this information and invitation on to others who you think may be interested.

We hope that this will be very a useful\, worthwhile and fun event. A number of challenges facing the ongoing development of the Sheds will be discussed. Two issues which we constantly receive enquiries about are 1) health and safety and 2) how best to support our fellow Shedders’ wellbeing. So we will have workshops on these topics. We will also hold a Pallet Challenge: what can a 2 man team from your shed produce from 2 pallets in two hours? We will supply 2 pallets\, nails and screws and the rest is up to you. If you’re interested in taking part in the pallet challenge we will send you the full list of rules and guidelines well in advance. The deadline for entries is two weeks before the event – that’s Friday the 13th of September. We will also discuss how the Sheds in each province can work together as our numbers grow. We would request that you email kelly(AT )menssheds.ie  to confirm numbers and ensure the smooth running of the day \, as soon as possible .

DESCRIPTION:The first of this year's provincial Men's Sheds Meetings will take place at Leighlinbridge Men's Shed and Parish Centre in Carlow on the 20th of July. We hope that this will be very a useful\, worthwhile and fun event. A number of challenges facing the ongoing development of the Sheds will be discussed. Two issues which we constantly receive enquiries about are 1) health and safety and 2) how best to support our fellow Shedders’ wellbeing. So we will have workshops on these topics. We will also hold a Pallet Challenge: what can a 2 man team from your shed produce from 2 pallets in two hours? We will supply 2 pallets\, nails and screws and the rest is up to you. If you're interested in taking part in the pallet challenge we will send you the full list of rules and guidelines well in advance. The deadline for entries is two weeks before the event - that's Friday the 5th of July. We will also discuss how the Sheds in each province can work together as our numbers grow. Hopefully at least five men from each Shed in Leinster will be there because we will have a few things going on at the same time: the Health and Safety workshop\, the wellbeing workshop and the pallet challenge. Lunch will be provided and the guys from leighlinbridge will show you around their shed. We need to know as soon as possible how many men from your Shed are going and what workshop would they like to attend so please download this form and send it to kelly@menssheds.ie straight away or at least by the 5th of July.     LOCATION:Circular Road URL:http://menssheds.ie/event/leinster-mens-sheds-gathering/ END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20131027 DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20131030 DTSTAMP:20140423T194329 CREATED:20130614T111833 LAST-MODIFIED:20130622T111345 UID:3593@http://menssheds.ie SUMMARY:International Mens Shed Conference DESCRIPTION:Eureka!!!

A Men’s Shed is a community-based\, non-commercial organisation which is open to all men where the primary activity is the provision of a safe\, friendly and inclusive environment where the men are able to gather and/or work on meaningful projects at their own pace\, in their own time and in the company of other men and where the primary objective is to advance the health and well-being of the participating men.  Men’s sheds may look like a shed in your back yard but they can be seen as an innovative mix between community education and health promotion projects. A public information evening on the Men’s Shed concept will be held on Thursday 6th of December at 8pm at the GMIT\, Castlebar.  This information evening is free of charge and open to all.  Booking is not necessary.
