A North East Together: Leaders Network for Social Change event
At the next Leaders Network for Social Change event on Thursday 21st June they’ll be exploring the future of volunteering with national, regional and local contributors.
The keynote speaker is George Thomson, CEO of Volunteer Scotland
In 2017 George took study leave to investigate approaches to increasing volunteer participation and inclusion. Through the lens of his own leadership journey during this time, his presentation will explore:
- The slide in participation/inclusion
- Unintended gentrification of volunteering
- Views on the street
- The invention of commUnity bubbles
- Who cares and why
You’ll also have opportunity to hear about regional and local volunteering trends, projects and initiatives, and take part in hosted group discussions and debates.
Of course, there will also be the usual updates and signposting to network linked activities, and plenty of opportunities for informal and guided networking.
They’ll also be sharing headlines from the recently completed research exploring the meaning and impact of the network through the experiences of members.
