Civil Society Futures: Mansfield

From 6.30pm on the 13th June we will meet to discuss the future of civil society in Mansfield with others from the local area.

If you’re part of civil society in Barking and are interested in joining this workshop – get in touch with Calum: [email protected] or Khadra: [email protected]

The session will be hosted by Citizens UK

Civil society is all of us.

When we act neither for profit nor because the law requires us to, but out of love or anger or creativity, or principle, we are civil society. When we bring together our friends or colleagues or neighbours to have fun or to defend our rights or to look after each other, we are civil society. Whether we organise through informal friendship networks, Facebook groups, community events and protests; or formal committees, charities, faiths and trade unions, whether we block runways or co-ordinate coffee mornings, sweat around charity runs or go to church every Sunday morning; when we organise ourselves outside the market and the state, we are all civil society. This Inquiry will be a two-year exploration by English civil society into its future, and you’re invited!

#civilsocietyfutures: How can power be deployed for positive and transformative change?
Jun 10 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

London

Civil society is all of us. When we act not for profit nor because the law requires us to, but out of love or anger or creativity, or principle, we are civil society.

At any given moment we have the power to say: “This is not how the story is going to end.” But what power means in the context of civil society. We might all think we know what it means to have power, but do we really? We’ll be exploring questions around:

  • Where does your power come from and how does it relate to power in the systems and structures around you?
  • What power do we have as civil society and how can we deploy it for positive and transformative change?

This event is part of the Unusual Suspects Festival, find out more here or sign up to attend.
