 +====== Exploring #​thewayahead for London as a networked and neighbourly city: January 10 event ======
 +
 +We are expanding the agenda for our event on January 10, which is looking at the role of technology and network thinking in London'​s civil society.
 +
 +//We all know that the digital revolution is here, but how do we make best use of that for social action in London? This is the challenge that motivates us.//
 +
 +On the 10th we'll be demonstrating our ideas for a Living Lab, that uses the fictional London borough of Slipham to explore how citizens and organisations can collaborate in the digital age. [[http://​www.mediablends.com/​2016/​help-us-co-design-a-living-lab-to-show-thewayforward-for|More on that in my previous post]].
 +
 +... [[http://​civi.lvsc.org.uk/​civicrm/​event/​info?​reset=1&​id=927|**signup here for the January 10 event**]] ...
 +
 +In addition we’ll share further plans for a three-month exploration into what it would take to make London a better networked city, in which interest groups and citizens find it easier to connect with each other, with public bodies and others who may offer support for social action.
 +
 +[[http://​www.mediablends.com/​2016/​help-us-co-design-a-living-lab-to-show-thewayforward-for|As I explained earlier]] our plans aim to complement and extend the [[http://​londonfunders.org.uk/​what-we-do/​london-funders-projects/​way-ahead-civil-society-heart-london|The Way Ahead - Civil Society at the Heart of London]] - a major initiative by a partnership of London Funders, London Voluntary Service Council and Greater London Volunteering,​ which emphasises that Londoners and their communities should be at the heart of any future plans, through processes of co-production.
 +
 +At an event on January 31 we'll explore how to apply lessons of network leadership and social learning to civil society with international specialist [[http://​jarche.com/​about/​|Harold Jarche]]. He's been [[http://​jarche.com/​endorsements/​|described]] as “a keen subversive of the last century’s management and education models”.
 +
 +Then on February 22 we'll be running an event in City Hall bringing together ideas from local and London-wide perspectives.
 +
 +In between we'll organise smaller meetups, and blog about the practicalities of cooperation and collaboration for anyone doing good in the networked, digital age.
 +
 +So far Drew Mackie and I have been working with a small group, and particularly Matt Scott at LVSC. They are providing initial funding. From the January 10 event we aim to form a larger core group for the exploration,​ with task groups focussing on specific issues.
 +
 +You can [[http://​civi.lvsc.org.uk/​civicrm/​event/​info?​reset=1&​id=927|signup here for our January 10 event]]. If you are interested in the later events, and the overall exploration,​ but can't make it on January 10, do get in touch - david@socialreporter.com or @davidwilcox on Twitter. We'll shortly have a new networkedcity blog and other ways to join in.
