GlobalNet21 is partnering up with FutureGov and Hub Launchpad for an evening of discussion at The House of Commons.
We will discuss how, as a democratic organisation, the House of Commons shapes up in comparison with other open organisations working for social good in different fields.
We will look at examples of organisations who have shifted from traditionally models and are enabling people to make decisions, work flexibly and collaboratively while cultivating transparency and accountability for decision-makers.
We invite you to prepare you questions now as you will have the chance to ask organisational experts and consultants what kind of innovations are underway and how we could help the House of Commons become a real "Open House".
6.30PM Start of panel talk
8.15 - 8.30PM End discussion
Tom Nixon, co-founder of the social consultancy NixonMcInnes
Simon Burall, Director, Involve
Brie Rogers Lowery UK Campaigns Director at Change.org
Diane Beddoes Chief Executive, Dialogue by Design
Following the speakers, a Q&A and discussion session will take place
We would like to thank Andy Love MP for arranging this for us.
How to get there?
The location is: Committee room 10 - House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA - The entrance for this is through Security at the St Stephen’s Entrance to the House opposite Cromwell Green. It is in the main Palace of Westminster. The closest underground is Westminster.
Can you please arrive a little early as you will have to go through security to get in and there is sometimes quite a queue.
If asked which event are you attending: just say you have come to the GlobalNet21 meeting in Committee 10 and that Andy Love MP is hosting it.
