At the end of February we relaunched Social Social, our bi-monthly networking events for the socially minded. It's great to be working in partnership with The Socent Connection again and to have a new home at Mansions of the Future.
At our last Social Social of 2018 we realised that things weren't quite working as we'd planned and we made a few tweaks for the relaunch. We've opened up the event to not only those working in or for social enterprises, but to anyone who's interested in affecting social change withing the wider community. Keeping the "social" aspect at the heart of Social Social, we've kept the same format of creating a relaxed environment that allows for free flowing conversations without the hard sell.
The Socent Connection brought some brilliant products from amazing Social Enterprise Toast Ale, Tea People, Divine Chocolate UK, Green & Black's, Karma Cola UK, and Cafedirect to sample during the event. We attracted a small but really enthusiastic group of people and had some really interesting conversations around social action in Lincoln and how we can bring forward a more cohesive society.
From this humble start we're looking at bringing together even more people and organisations in order to further discussion around how social change is generated, corporate social responsibility, community action, co-working and generally making the world a better place.
We'll be returning for another Social Social towards the end of April, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.
