1. Laura Hyde, Chain Reaction - March 19, 2009

I wonder if any of your members would be interested in another discussion taking part on the 25th March which is being hosted by a local organisation ‘Arts in Regeneration’, and will discuss the questions:

“Does the recession provide an opportunity to rebuild a better, fairer society? What can we do now to ensure that we emerge from the current economic challenges with stronger, more connected and more caring communities?”

The Council on Social Action, set up to advise the Prime Minister on his agenda for social action, would like to engage people from around the country in developing ideas about creating social renewal alongside economic renewal. Here is a link to the paper: http://www.chain-reaction.org/assets/pdfs/StrongerCommunitiesSummary.pdf

The thoughts and ideas generated as a result will be fed directly back to the Council on Social Action, who will then make recommendations to the Prime Minister and government departments.

Anyone can get involved! Please visit our website for more info / to get involved http://www.chain-reaction.org/index.php?/chain-reaction/stronger_communities/
