Our events are free of charge. Instead, we ask each participant some questions for you to answer in advance which help our team to do three things:
- Enable our community managers to connect people who ought to meet at the event.
- Customise each event so that it is especially relevant and generative to each participant.
- Process documentation from the event to produce a research report which turns individual conversation into collective insight.
Please mention the name / topic of the event you want to participate in, and the city or town where it is happening.

Truth seeking and a sense of justice. One day I’d be optimistic and hopeful about the future, and the next it might be all doom and gloom. The constant pendulum of utopia versus dystopia can sometimes be exhausting.
(Q3/3) What interests you about the event topic? Great, now that you’ve made it easier for us to introduce you to the others – start to think about the topic and purpose of the event itself. Why do you want to participate in it? How do you feel the topic touches your work or life at the moment / in the future?
Given my own social background, I think I’m not familiar enough with the threats that increased inequalities can present to a society. I’d like to see how the field of data governance can be linked to the topic so as to better represent it in the future.
