We believe that strong, successful community organisations are the key to solving the big economic, social, and environmental challenges we face. The incredible community response to Covid showed that community power is more relevant than ever. It is an idea whose time is now.
We are proud to have championed the Power of Community for a century. Our belief in community power is the golden thread that runs through our work and that of our predecessors – the Federation of Residential Settlements, BASSAC and DTA.
In this plenary, we will celebrate our past and embrace a community-powered future. We will discuss how the “community moment” experienced during the pandemic can provide the blueprint for a fairer society.
Visits off-site with packed lunch, or lunch onsite with networking, exhibition, fringe meetings and surgeries – In person
Access to online networking, optional webinar or on-demand content – Online
The week before we meet for Locality ‘21, the world will gather in Glasgow for COP26. The climate conference will set the global direction for climate action. The decisions taken will be key to avoiding further climate catastrophe.
However, we cannot rely solely on a top-down approach to tackling the climate crisis. Communities must also drive solutions if we are to ensure that the transition to a net zero-carbon world is just.
This plenary will bring together policy experts and individuals taking action at a local level to discuss the vital role that communities can play in tackling the climate crisis.
Networking, exhibition and time to change for the evening – In person
Access to online networking and on demand content – Online
