This unique event takes a look at how communities can thrive and make a meaningful contribution to the post-COVID recovery through the prism of wellbeing economics.
We will also talk about the National Lottery Community Fund’s Civil Society Approach – an attempt to bolster and embolden the community sector to be prepared for the future by providing access to community assets, technology and shared knowledge.
These two approaches overlap with the principles of Community Wealth Building, an agenda that DTNI will be driving throughout 2021.
There will be an opportunity to put your questions to the panel, to network with other delegates and to shape how we continue with the enquiry into the needs of communities in NI during 2021.
Breakout sessions, facilitated by local community development leaders and NLCF, will include:
