Stronger things: unleashing community power

March 12 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


NLGN and partners are thrilled to invite you to Stronger Things: Unleashing Community Power, our biggest event of 2020, taking place on 12 March at the Guildhall in the heart of the City of London.

A year on from the publication of NLGN’s Community Paradigm, Stronger Things is for those who know that the solutions to our most pressing challenges can only be found in our communities. We will host over 400 senior people from across the UK’s public sector, and beyond, to share their successes and challenges of empowering communities. This conference will give you the connections, tools and insights you need to further that vision at your organisation.

So get ready for a day of grappling with challenges and engaging with new ideas alongside some of the most radical thinkers and practitioners in our sector, including: Helen Bevan, Chief Transformation Officer, NHS Horizons; Prof. Donna Hall, Chair, NLGN; Kajal Odedra, Director, Change.org UK and Julia Unwin, CBE, Chair, Civil Society Futures Inquiry.
