Responsible Business Week 2014 planterPoverty is an issue that affects us all and it’s an issue we all have a responsibility to address. Yorkshire businesses have a critical role to play in creating sustainable communities and improve the lives of both their own employees and local people.

This session will provide delegates with tools to get started as well as introduce delegates to contacts from across Yorkshire, so that they can work together on simple, innovative projects that will make a real difference to your local areas.

The format of the day will be split into two sections. The morning will focus on how to disrupt poverty and the afternoon look at projects we can deliver together. These will both be ‘open space’ sessions so that attendees can determine what they want to talk about on the day and lead sessions themselves (no preparation needed). Mike Chitty, a local facilitator and trainer, will introduce and lead the sessions.

We will be asking delegates:

  • How do you start disrupting poverty?

  • What can you do yourself?

  • What can you and some other people do together?

  • What do ‘they’ need to do that you can campaign for?

Please join us for the whole day for just the morning or just the afternoon. There will be plenty of time for questions and networking. Please come with ideas and questions and be prepared to take part in the sessions – the more we share the better.

Tea and Coffee will be availableCar parking is not available on site but there is a ‘pay & display’ a very short walk away (as is the train station)
