Hi I work in community development and have over a decade of experience working in social enterprise across the cultural and community development sector.

To achieve this aim I feel we need to rethink many of the structures values and approaches currently prevalent across the UK and much of the western world. For this rethinking to happen we need to learn from each other and allow others to learn from us.

A great perceptive comment from George Orwell

All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome.

Hello Mark. I saw some reference to IFF and H3 in your comments on resilience. Can I assume you have been in the company of my friend Andrew Lyon? I am also interested in your British Council link: I sit on their advisory board for education and governance, and have been involved in a parallel exercise they have been running on 'cultural leadership' which I suspect should have been much closer to the experience you are engaged in around 'community leadership'. So.... it would be good to be in touch if you are interested. My email is graham(at)internationalfuturesforum.com
