About this event

Over the last 18 months IVAR has gathered views from a range of communities across the UK asking ‘How can communities become more empowered and vibrant in the next ten years?'.

The Empowered Communities in the 2020s is nearing its conclusion. Book now to have your say at the finale of this exciting research project.

Join the conversation
The interactive launch event will feature a presentation from IVAR about issues communities have raised during the research, including:

  • the importance of spaces, as places and opportunities for people to meet informally overcome differences
  • the idea of ‘transience’ in communities that have previously seen little change
  • questions about whether communities should be responsible for change, or if that responsibility lies with others

This will be followed by an open floor discussion inviting you to share your response to the research and consider what it means for the future of your community.

Live stream
If you can't make it to London - you can still take part in the discussion from wherever you are in the country by joining our live stream. So we can keep you in the loop, book on with the live stream ticket and we'll send you the link when it starts.
