We are delighted to announce that Collaborate CIC will be hosting an evening event on Thursday 13th June – How can we build a Collaborative Society?
Now more than ever we need to consider what the future of society could look like. We think this future is collaborative: this is about the way we approach some of our greatest challenges — from climate change to inequality — but also about how we relate to each other, how we organise, lead, share power and mobilise for change.
At this event we will take the theme of the Collaborative Society as a starting point for exploring provocative ideas and inspiring examples and rich discussion. The event will begin with contributions from a fantastic line up of leading thinkers and practitioners from different fields:
The acclaimed and ‘renegade’ economist and author who is exploring the economic mindset needed to address the 21st century’s social and ecological challenges. Kate’s internationally acclaimed idea of Doughnut Economics has been widely influential amongst sustainable development thinkers, progressive businesses and political activists. Kate is a Senior Visiting Research Associate at Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute and a Senior Associate at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership.
The Strategic Director of Reform at Oldham, a place that is leading the field in place-based public service reform, alongside investment in thriving communities and inclusive approaches to growth.
The Co-Founder and Director of Birmingham Impact Hub, a system change activist focused on creating large scale systemic change with citizens at its heart, bridging the space between complex systems science and bold experimental practice in Birmingham. Immy is the creator of projects and spaces that bring together diverse, passionate and talented people and create unlikely collaborations for local change.
The Strategic Adviser to Oxfam GB, author of ‘How Change Happens’ and the From Poverty to Power blog. Duncan is a Professor in Practice at the London School of Economics. Duncan’s work on how to create change in complex and uncertain environments addresses questions of power, complexity and system change, drawing on academia and learning from real examples across the world.
Isabelle Kocher (invited)
The Chief Executive Officer of ENGIE, Isabelle’s ambition is to make ENGIE — the world’s largest non-state-owned energy company — the leader of the energy revolution. In her first move as CEO, Kocher instituted a three-year plan to shift the company’s portfolio from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. A ‘born reformer’, Isabelle is the only female CEO of a CAC40 company.
The event will be chaired by Collaborate’s Chair, Lord Victor Adebowale, and we are grateful to Engie UK for hosting at their offices.
There will be a drinks reception afterwards.
I do hope you will be able to join us for this exciting and timely discussion!
