What is social action? Living our values in practice

This members’ talk is an invitation into an exploration of how we can live our values more fully through putting social action into practice. What is Systemic Social Action? will be both a presentation around the key ideas underpinning systemic social action and social action research, as well as a discussion around your own connections to this thinking in your own practice and lived experience.

The event aims to begin a process of coproduction, with you as audience, exploring ways in which we can enhance our current thinking and practice through embedding elements of systemic social action at multiple levels in our systems, our training and ways of working. Our aim is to enhance the lives of our clients and communities, privileging lived experience as well as learned experience and taking small steps towards social justice.
