This is the second in a series of events for Power to Change and Promising Trouble exploring the intersections of Community Tech with other fields of work and practice. It's part of a range of work that Power to Change and Promising Trouble are doing to grow the field of Community Tech - from creating new funding programmes to commissioning research. The second in the event series is on Community Tech and Place - from the neighbourhood to the Local Council and we have two speakers that will be in conversation with Rachel Coldicutt who’s leading the work for Promising Trouble, and hosted by Cassie Robinson.
We'll be exploring questions like - Where is the greatest potential for community tech in place? What does it mean for community tech to be accountable to place - to the people, communities and natural world that is rooted there? And then we'll explore what each speaker is doing in their context. Civic Square have been developing community tech that brings the concepts of doughnut economics to life at a neighbourhood scale . In her role as CEO at Adur + Worthing Council, Catherine Howe sees lots of opportunity for community tech, that puts people, planet and places first.
Our speakers are the brilliant Immy Kaur and Catherine Howe - you can read more in their biographies below.
