The Future of Communities
Tuesday 10 July, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
‘Empowered Communities in the 2020s’ aims to gather a wide range of views about the future of communities. Through this research project Local Trust is asking: ‘How can communities become more empowered and vibrant in the next ten years?’.
This interactive launch event will feature a presentation from the Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) about issues communities have raised during the research, including:
- The importance of spaces, as places and opportunities for people to meet informally overcome differences
- The idea of ‘transience’ in communities that have previously seen little change
- Questions about whether communities should be responsible for change, or if that responsibility lies with others.
This will be followed by an open floor discussion inviting attendees to share their responses to the research and consider what it means for the future of their communities.
If you can’t make it to London, you can still take part in the discussion from wherever you are in the country by joining the live stream. Book on with the live stream ticket and a link will be sent when it starts. OCF will be taking part in the live stream.
