This masterclass of the the Night Academy is for those that are the social glue of the organisation. It is a place to talk about the challenges and joys that come with the task. To share best practises and community theory. It’s a place to nerd out on the influence that “social nodes” can have in the general wellbeing of the organisation, members and its future. We will talk about the intersection of the personal and the professional and discuss sensitive topics related to building up trust-based communities.
We will dive into contemporary community theories and talk about shared legal and financial ownership, less hierarchical forms of decision making and online tools and communication strategies that support trust-based collectives. We will explore how this incremental changes in our communities and businesses can support the larger collective transformation towards a responsible and meaningful future society.
