SOCIAL POWER NETWORK SCOTLAND PILOT WORKSHOP: CLIMBING OUT OF OUR SILOS – CAN WE TACKLE BIG ISSUES TOGETHER?

June 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Free

The key ambition of Social Power Scotland is to explore whether there is value in creating a new space for change-makers to come together to pool knowledge, ideas and resources that could strengthen their ability to drive change – individually and collectively.  

Together, Scottish campaigners, community leaders and activists have designed a new network for change-makers from right across civil society in Scotland. It is based on a belief that there is value in civil society coming together across its parts, from people working deep in communities to people working on the national stage. That there is value in sharing perspectives across issues, in moving out of our siloes to explore common challenges. That we can learn a huge amount from each other as well as building energy and momentum by openly talking, sharing, pondering. That in coming together, civil society in Scotland can build its power to drive change individually and collectively.  

Each session, two network members will kick things off, talking about how they have approached the challenge. We’ll then share our own experiences, swap intelligence and insights, consider where there are gaps we need to fill, and what we can learn. The sessions will be informal, with light touch facilitation just to keep things moving. We will set our own agendas, hear from others, make connections, pull out learning from successes as well as mistakes. Ultimately, we want to come away inspired and curious about what our own next steps could be and open to new possibilities.
