As someone in my seventies, with a long background on being involved in statutory and Third Sector organisations I'm very interested in ways in which community development issues and dialogue can take place nationally and internationally. In Cambridge, for example, where I live there is little or not discussion about the theory and practice of community deveopment issues.
Ways in which people who are ageing can make their contribution to grass-roots upwards approaches, especially involving people on the margins, to contribute to a more pluralistic and participative society.
Yes around the issues above. Especially cooperation, pro-active networking, working together and challenging the status quo.
Developing local links and connections? 'Only connect' wrote Forster and I believe this is a key concept for us all to move on...

Very good but there is a strong need for face to face regional coordination.
