Event Details

The Big Society Network is an organisation that exists to help people achieve change in their local area. Our aim is to create a new relationship between Citizens and Government in which both are genuine partners in getting things done: real democracy using all the human and technological tools we now have available. This partnership will also add a third and fourth leg to its sturdy chair by involving business and the voluntary sector.

Over the course of the summer and autumn we are be embarking of a series of meetings with representatives of civil society and citizens to listen to their stories and generate new practical ideas to help people to engage in meaningful local action, to raise the number of  people who take part in group activities and help community groups and social enterprises to benefit from both existing and new legislation that supports The Big Society. 

On the afternoon of the 9 September we plan to bring a cross section of people from across civil society in the North West, into a conversation with the Big Society team. 

The event will provide the first opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas with the Big Society Network team including Paul Twivy and Steve Moore. 

The event will take place from 5.00-8.00pm and will be facilitated using open space technology which will enable all participants to shape the agenda. 

We are extremely grateful to Stockport College for hosting us and we look forward to seeing you there.
