Join our community today!
Our ambition is to create an international learning community, whose members can find out together about shifting roles, responsibilities and opportunities for linking society and democracy.
As they rework the relationship between bottom-up and top-down patterns of organisation, new forms of co-operation, co-creation and practical experimentation are pushing public, civic and market entities to rethink the ways they relate to each other. Their experiences pose important questions. For example, how can we support and facilitate grassroots initiatives whilst at the same time addressing public concerns? How can we respond to demands for action when the rules of the game itself are changing?
Citizens and civic professionals often work pragmatically in these settings, seeking to learn as they act. Their stories contain a wealth of insights, which can become the working knowledge that binds a community of practitioners across political and institutional borders.
