Now the Olympics are over we all need a bit of inspiration again. Something to celebrate. That's exactly what Oxfam wants to create - and we need your help to do it!

Just this year Oxfam campaigners have had some major wins. From securing aid for millions of people in the Sahel region of Africa to progress in the Arms Trade Treaty and Robin Hood Tax, it's not an exaggeration to say you've been a busy lot! We want to showcase those successes and prove to the sceptics that campaigning can and does change the world. Will you help us? 

On Saturday 13 October we'll be in Birmingham for the day and we want to get 20 of you - our most active and creative supporters - to join us there. 

 The day will involve…

  • Working together to create an exciting and engaging event that will inspire thousands of people in the UK to campaign with Oxfam and grow the movement for change 
  • Networking with inspiring and creative supporters of Oxfam and the Global Poverty Project 
  • Sharing and developing skills and experience in innovation and event design  
  • Getting a sneak preview of something huge and exciting that will happen in 2013 - on a scale not seen since Make Poverty History! 

To register to take part, or to find out more, email Suzanne Saunter on ssaunter@oxfam.org.uk with your name, contact details (including postcode, telephone number and email) and a brief statement explaining why you'd like to get involved. 

We'll call back the 20 people that inspire us most and invite them to take part. 

Everyone, even those unable to attend, will be invited to help us at the next stage of development through online testing of the concepts, so don't worry if you don't make it through this time. Good luck!
