Exploring Community and the State

In the UK the agency Locality is hosting a debate on exploring a possible new deal between community and the state. Locality describe this event as: How should we respond to austerity policies? Shout from the sidelines, stand by as services are dismantled or look for more positive and more fundamental alternatives? At this event, we will discuss how we can ‘build possibility’ by changing the relationship between the state, community and individual citizens - by shifting power and mobilizing the many. We'll share learning from recent practice around: community organising neighbourhood community budgets community enterprise community asset ownership digital innovation Thought-provoking, informative, practical – don’t miss this event for anyone who cares about the future of our public services. Speakers Speakers include Don Foster MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for DCLG; Neal Lawson, Chair of Compass; Geraldine Blake, CEO of Community Links More details are here: http://locality.org.uk/events/building-possibility-deal-community-state/ Buy Kicks | Nike Releases, Launch Links & Raffles
