B1: Visions of the future? Where next for civil society and how we are going to get there

NCVO icons leadershipAt the end of 2018 – the Civil Society Futures Inquiry shared its final findings. It put forward a PACT for civil society, by civil society – shared aspirations for us all to commit to, for the decade ahead and beyond. It’s not waiting for permission or hoping others will provide a plan. It’s civil society making a commitment to get ready for the future.

It is a response to the changing world we live in, based on what Civil Society Futures has heard from thousands of people across England.

The PACT is intended to support us all to thrive in the future, and to build on the very best existing initiatives across civil society. Collectively, we have the power to change ourselves and shape our country and communities for the better. The PACT is something we can all put into practice in what we do as part of civil society, but what does this mean for your everyday? What does it mean for you personally? Or for your organisations? What is getting in the way of us doing this? Join this practical session to explore these questions more and leave with ideas for what you can do now.
