This coming Saturday and Sunday, 22nd and 23rd October, there is the annual English book sale in Monteton (47), with hundreds of books for all tastes at 1€ each. Tea, coffee and home-made cakes. Monteton is a charming village with a fine church and chateau (Anglican sung matins at 10h30 on Sunday). It is also near Duras with its castle and Allemans-sur-Dropt with its mediaeval frescoes.
We’re delighted to bring Meeting Minds to the world digitally this year – from 7-12 September – and we hope you can join us for a FREE programme of events!
Each day, join us for a wealth of live and recorded content from all around the University including panel discussions, Q&As, virtual tours, musical performances and much more!
Why not also consider connecting and socialising with fellow group volunteers during the event on the main channel on our My Oxford Network platform? (Please note, you will need to register for My Oxford Network beforehand)
The event is completely FREE! All you need to do is register your interest here (you will need your Oxford Alumni Number) to receive more information and links to the full programme.
We will also be organising a series of online forums for group volunteers later in the year and will send out details of these once they are finalised.
As usual, if you have any questions, please email us.
We have received the following message from this network:
” Dear OUS South West France,
We are excited to announce the launch of the Oxford Climate Alumni Network (OxCAN) on September 8 as a part of Meeting Minds Global. OxCAN is a collaborative initiative by the Oxford Climate Society, alumni and academics across University departments, including the Environmental Change Institute and is an official group under the Oxford Alumni Office.
The network aims to connect climate conscious alumni to one another, to the latest climate and sustainability research and to initiatives and students working on climate at Oxford University.
We thought this might be something you and your Oxford alumni would be interested in learning about.
