Creating Networks To Rebuild Lives

The 21st Century is likely to be marked with increasing instability and security challenges across the globe, as the combined impacts of resource shortages, climate change, ethnic and religious polarisation and societal inequalities bite ever deeper. More and more displaced communities seem inevitable. This is the prime focus of ReBuilding Lives.

Following on from the Webinar that we held on this in February we now plan to take this one step further at this meetup. The aim of the meeting is to see how ordinary citizens, funders, businesses of all kinds, non government organisations and others can play a significant role in rebuilding the lives of those badly affected by man made and natural disasters.

The meeting will be preceded by an afternoon meeting of a core group of people that will look at how we can develop a network of people who can make a difference in rebuilding lives. They will report to our evening meeting.

So to help us in the discussion we will have,

Robert Roots, Disaster and Risk Reduction Adviser, from The Red Cross who has a wealth of experience working in this field.

Andy Fryer from Ethos who will report back from the afternoon meeting of a few core people who will begin to develop an action plan that we can discuss.

Rober Pye from Ethos who will talk about how we can take all this forward and develop an action plan where more and more people can be involved in the process of rebuilding.

Rebuilding Lives may be a recurrent theme of the 21st century and may effect us in Europe as any where else in a world that is increasingly turbulent and unpredictable.

We are holding this meeting in collaboration with Ethos who are exploring ways to configure pre-existing capabilities in novel ways, whilst involving the displaced communities at the heart of the proposition, to form collaborations that will construct the infrastructure necessary to rebuild displaced communities and maximise their chances of sustainability.

Although membership of our site is free we do expect all those who attend our events to pay a subscription of £10 for a whole year that covers attendance not just to one meeting but also to the vast majority of our meetups and webinars for any one year. It also allows you to bring one guest free to every meeting or webinar.
