Chain Reaction is a conference/collaboration/networking event taking place in London from the 17th to the 18th November this year – part of the Prime Ministers Council on Social Action. It's aiming to bring together people with ideas for positive action on social change to 'Connect', 'Collaborate' and 'Commit' to action.
And I was rather encouraged to see that in response to the question 'Who should come' they make explicit that this isn't just for the established great and good of the emerging social innovation conference circuit.
But not only that – they back it up with the fee structure. Take a look at this:
|Category||1 day||1 day (inc. VAT)||2 days||2 days (inc. VAT)|
|Government / Public Sector||Â£247||Â£290.23||Â£445||Â£522.41|
Â£18 for a ticket if you are under 21 – as opposed to Â£715 for a business. That is getting the incentives and the priorities right!
So if you know young people who have been exploring positive ideas for action on social change – whose energy, enthusiasm and insights are much needed by events like this – let them know about it. With the wealth of experience in running projects and taking action being built through the Youth Opportunity Fund and Youth Banks, and through many other youth led projects – there are plenty of people out there who the PMs Council on Social Action really need as part of their Chain Reaction…
