We are now half way into this year`s Social Capital World Forum – Living Bridges. A process forum with activities taking place on a regular basis in the field of social capital that will end with the final event in Gothenburg Sweden on November 30th to December 3rd.
Copenhagen – August 17th
Over the last weeks we have taken some important steps in outlining an ecosystem, “Living Bridges Planet” which will facilitate social capital development among connectors, or “Living Bridgers”. An important aspect in developing the ecosystem is to connect virtual communities and local communities around the world in a coordinated way. With our upcoming event in Copenhagen on the 17th of August, with the help of Appreciative Inquiry Denmark, Make Change TV and The HUB Copenhagen, we will construct a symbol of a “Living Bridge”.
Chicago – September 13th
On the 13th of September we take the next important step when we for the first time will be a virtual network partner with Social Enterprise Alliance Chicago Chapter (page), Governor’s Task Force on Social Innovation Illinois and Groupon Grassroots in Chicago. Topic will be “Next Generation of Social Enterprise” (more info on eventbrite page). In the run up to the event we will moderate a discussion on the topic which then functions as input to the event.
Virtual partner to orgs and networks
In the coming months we will continue this process in with another planned 4-5 events around the world, being a virtual partner to organizations and networks which are supporting grassroots or themselves are grassroots organizations.
