 +# Rethinking civil society - with lessons from rethinking work and @hjarche at free London event
 +
 +[Published on Networkcity.blog](http://​www.networkedcity.blog/​2017/​rethinking-civil-society---with-lessons-from-rethinking-work-and)
 +
 +We have a terrific opportunity on January 31 to rethink what's needed to do social good in London, with a free all-day event led by [Harold Jarche](http://​jarche.com/​about/​),​ international expert on networks, social learning and leadership. [Signup here](http://​civi.lvsc.org.uk/​civicrm/​event/​info?​reset=1&​id=928)
 +
 +Can we continue successfully with the current mix of community and voluntary organisations - provided they can find ways to survive and meet new social challenges as funding is cut?
 +
 +Or should we look at new ways of organising, learning from those who are [re-inventing work](https://​www.thersa.org/​events/​fellowship-events/​2016/​7/​rsa-fellows-reinventing-work-network-changing-the-structures-of-work12-July) as a more fluid mix of teams, communities of practice, and social networks?
 +Here's Harold'​s model. You can [read more on his blog](https://​jarche.com/​2016/​07/​principles-and-models-for-the-network-era/​).

 +
 +I think we need to retain and support the best of the current work of maybe 100,000 community and voluntary organisations,​ social enterprises and coops in London, and also also explore new ways of work within and outside traditional structures.
 +
 +The event is part of the exploration into making London a more networked city, [explained in this background paper](https://​goo.gl/​KzNFhw). We are running the event with London Voluntary Service Council, who are supporting Network City. As they say in an introduction to the event:
 +
 +> Digital technology and the shift to networks is transforming social action. ​ If we want to change lives and support communities we need new models, skills, thinking and transform how we think about governance and user empowerment  ​
 +
 +
 +> This event will consider how the opportunities and challenges of digital tech and networks can transform social action. ​ We will also look at the structures (governance arrangements) to ensure sustainability and the steps we need to take together to deal with constant change whilst getting things done.  ​
 +
 +
 +> The event will include presentations,​ models of innovative practice, live simulation exercises, group work and discussions,​ sharing stacks and other resources.  ​
 +
 +If you can't make it, you can sign up to  [an email discussion list](https://​networkedcity.groups.io/​g/​main) or contact me david@socialreporter.com for an invitation to our Slack team.
