Everyday Participation: The Seven Modes

In partnership with

How good is your organisation at getting people to participate? What could you achieve if you had larger and more active support? And why do so many democratic businesses and organisations struggle to do participation well? 

This practical workshop will introduce the “Seven Modes of Everyday Participation”: a simple tool to help you find ways for people to get closer and contribute to your work and mission in small but meaningful ways, on an everyday basis. You can expect to take away a workable prototype for a new participation opportunity for your organisation or project.
