It’s Bloody Complicated: Tomorrow’s Communities


Communities do not want things done to them from on high, but neither do they want to be left to struggle on their own. To become stronger and more inclusive, communities need the right kind of support from government.

Join us at 6pm on Tuesday 14th September for the next edition of It’s Bloody Complicated, when we will explore what is needed to enable communities to attain better social, economic and environmental outcomes,

Joining us will be Henry Tam, editor of the new book Tomorrow’s Communities: Lessons for community-based transformation in the age of global crises, and contributors to the book Marjorie Mayo and Diane Warburton.

Henry Tam is a political writer whose books include Time to Save Democracy and Whose Government is it?. He was Head of Civil Renewal under the last Labour government.

Marjorie Mayo is Professor of Community Development at Goldsmiths, University of London. Her recent publications include Community-based learning and social movements and Changing Communities: stories of migration, displacement and solidarities.

Diane Warburton is a founding Trustee of Involve. Her published works include Community and Sustainable Development and From Here to Sustainability.

This event is open to everyone. Live recordings of It’s Bloody Complicated are usually exclusively for Compass members.
