PLUGGING THE LEAKS

Facilitated by Glenn Jenkins and Rob Goodwin of  Marsh Farm Outreach

The economies of left-behind neighbourhoods are often highly extractive with money being leaked out to private corporations with remote headquarters and the profits not realised in the places where the money is spent.

BUILDING AND SUSTAINING POWER BEYOND THE PANDEMIC

Facilitated by Nick Gardham of Community Organisers

As new forms of leadership emerge, and as people start to look at how they can sustain the actions that have taken place during the pandemic we need to start to explore the power imbalances in our society.

In this webinar, we will start to ask ourselves some important questions, as we look to the future.

  • How do we unleash the potential of neighbour to neighbour power that is developing?
  • How can we start to share power with institutions and organisations that exist in our communities?
  • How do we strengthen and revitalised democracy at the local level?
