The future of citizenship - NCVO Third Sector Foresight seminar

How will changing notions and behaviours of citizenship affect your organisation and how should you respond?

This will be the topic of the next in our popular series of NCVO Third Sector Foresight seminars.  Read on to book your free place at the seminar on 17 January, from 2.30 to 5pm in London.

What is happening?

The ways in which people are engaging with both the state and with each other are changing as ideas about what it means to be a 'citizen' shift. This will have implications for the health of democracy (and the role of the voluntary and community sector in the democratic sphere), the delivery of public services, attitudes towards volunteering and the quality of life in Britain. Voluntary and community organisations will need to respond to these political and social changes.

The seminar

Michelle Harrison (Henley Centre Headlight Vision) will introduce the key drivers affecting how notions, definitions and behaviours of citizenship in the UK might evolve in the future, and four scenarios for citizenship in 2026. Michael Evans (Changemakers) will reflect on how voluntary and community sector organisations could respond to these social and political changes. The focus of the seminar will be on small group discussions during which our facilitators will help you to explore implications and practical responses.
