Facebook - Communities in the digital age

This session will explore how communities are adapting and developing new approaches to impact in a digital age.

"In developed democracies all over the world levels of civic participation and social trust are in well documented decline. Are communities dying or is it just that how they are showing up in lives is changing?"

This session will explore how communities are adapting and developing new approaches to impact in a digital age. George Gabriel from Facebook’s Community Partnerships Team will share the findings of a year-long program of research conducted in partnership with New York University’s Governance Lab, including never before released UK specific insights, looking at key trends in community and the extent to which they have been accelerated by the covid 19 crisis.

Suzanne Alderson of Parenting Mental Health, Emmy McCarthy of Essex Coronavirus Action Support, and Marvyn Harrison of Dope Black Dads will each share their experiences of building digital communities as lived experience first efforts to drive impact and make change. Join this session for some rich provocation and insight and an opportunity to discuss emerging trends with thought leaders from private and non-profit sectors
