Where: Shine Unconference
When: Friday 14th May 2010 Pod 1 3:00PM to 4:10PM
About: Rural social enterprise is growing fast. It’s set to become a huge force in the development of rural economies, as traditional agriculture continues to decline. But the people driving the change are currently out of the support-network enjoyed by the cities. There is a huge opportunity for rural and urban social entrepreneurs to connect and partner, to build the network and further the overall growth of social enterprise. So how can you, the SHINE participant, support and in turn benefit from the renovation of the countryside?
Join us in this this practical session with Clear Village and The Hub. Limina is developing rural Hubs to support entrepreneurs and we are inviting you to get involved. In this session, get to grips with the ways we can we build better connections…
Wednesday 12th May, Hub Islington, 1-2pm
Now it’s spring and the leaves are beginning to unfurl, don’t you just want to run about outdoors? What if there was a network of rural Hubs where you could get into the verdant British countryside and work remotely?
Would you like to swim in a river after work and eat freshly grown produce? Hold events and workshops in peaceful and grounded surroundings, get you hands in the soil and wake up to wide horizons and birdsong?
What benefits do you think social entrepreneurs could take to the countryside? What could you gain whilst you were there?
Could we help build rural enterprise and extend the Hub network?
