NESTA is launching the Neighbourhood Challenge, a major programme that will demonstrate how to galvanize communities to respond to local priorities. Over the next year, NESTA will work with partners to trial different approaches to community organising and supporting community-led innovation, initially in ten local areas across England.
Please join us on Tuesday 26th October to launch this new programme. At the event, we will consider why community led responses are so critical to the government’s vision of the Big Society, how the programme will be shaped and how partners can get involved.
Speakers will include Nick Hurd MP, Minister for Civil Society, Peter Wanless, Chief Executive of the Big Lottery Fund, Alan Rosenblatt, Associate Director for Online Advocacy at the Center for American Progress and Lynne Berry, Chief Executive of WRVS. The event will be chaired by Nesta’s Chief Executive Jonathan Kestenbaum.
