Big Society Debate at Edelman breakfast

You are here: Home / Blog / Politics / Big Society Debate at Edelman breakfast
1
Dec
The venue: Edelman in Victoria Street, SW1

The topic: The Big Society

The Speakers: Nick Hurd MP, Minister for Civil Society, John Armitt, ODA, Peter Oborne, Daily Telegraph, Kevin Maguire, Daily Mirror and John Sauven of Greenpeace

The Chairman: Robert Phillips, Edelman CEO

The debate: www.edelman.com

The question from me: I posed the question that just as Bonhoeffer had predicted the church would become the social church after WW2 -viz Oxfam, War on Want, Shelter, Samaritans et al were founded by clergy perhaps now what is needed is the same changes to politics with a new "church" of localism which would tear down the walls of councils where hardly anyone votes for them.

The Conclusion: The Big Society proposals (still green shoots) needs further iterations if it is to resonate locally.
