Hacking Social Cohesion: Free

Wed 29/03/2017 18:30 to 21:00

Believe we can all live together despite difference? Join us to work out how to make London a better place to live, together!

PlanLab are partnering with the charity Near Neighbours to run this important event, at London's first Happy Cafe - The Canvas Cafe.

Who are Near Neighbours?
The idea is to bring people together who are near neighbours in communities that are religiously and ethnically diverse, so that they can get to know each other better, build relationships of trust, and collaborate together on initiatives that improve the local community they live in.

Near Neighbours has two key objectives:
- Social interaction - to develop positive relationships in multi-faith areas i.e. to help people from different faiths get to know and understand each other better.
- Social action - to encourage people of different faiths and of no faith to come together for initiatives that improve their local neighbourhood.

Strategy Hack Details:
*Attendees need to be between 25-44 yrs old and interested in using their passion for social cohesion/skills/creativity to help the charity. All IP stays with attendees.
*There will be chance to network between 6.30-7.00pm
*We will be laying on a buffet as we workshop, including beer, wine and soft drinks - on us!
*Between 7-9pm there will be a mix of workshop style idea creating activities.

Ultimately the goal is to start a movement, have fun and be creative for good!
