Where next for localism and co-production event

Where next for localism and co-production- an event by Consumer Focus and Involve

“Consumer focus and Involve held an event in March 2012 that brought together a range of individuals from national government, local government, the voluntary and community sector, the social innovation field, academia and think tanks to explore some of the challenges and opportunities for localism and co-production in the coming years.

The event drew upon two pieces of research that were launched at the event Hands Up and Hands On and Pathways through Participation’ by NCVO, IVR and Involve.” ( Tim Hughes, http://wherenextlocalism.posterous.com/ March 15, 2012)

There is a really interesting write up of the event here http://wherenextlocalism.posterous.com/ the post includes a series of co-production case studies as well as a summary of the key discussions from the event, this includes some of the critical issues that prevent participation.

All well worth a read!
