Chepstow

Discussion Group

ConvenerFiona Jackson 07712 020619
Meet Monthly first Thursday at 2.00 pm on Zoom.

The group have agreed a set of principles for the discussions

  • An individual member of the group will take responsibility for a topic at each meeting and introduce it to the group
  • No topic to intentionally offend
  • Every individual is entitled to give their opinion without interruption
  • Prepare for the subject under discussion
  • Party politics and personal religious beliefs are off limits. Politics and religion in general terms are acceptable

Possible Topics for Future Meetings

  • Depression - Why are so many people suffering from mental health issues?
  • 'If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear' (George Orwell).
  • Global warming.
  • What else can u3a do for you?
  • Effective Communication - the art of listening
  • Plastic pollution. How can we overcome it?
  • Electric cars - the pros and the cons.
  • The cashless society - progress or not?
  • Political correctness. Embrace it or reject it?
  • Chepstow u3a has had approximately the same number of male/female chairs, the UK has had two female PMs, but the USA has never had a female President. Would they benefit from one to follow Biden?
  • The slave trade. Should we take personal responsibility? Should all statues be removed?
  • Click on Exeter u3a Discussion Circle for over 100 ideas!

Our discussions are sometimes serious, often light hearted, but everyone is allowed to have their say. We will never change the world but we enjoy talking about how would if we could!
