If you can’t make it along to this event in Coventry, sign up here to be the first to know when tickets are made available for upcoming Local by Social events in the north-west, north-east and south-west of England
The delegate list is filling up fast for the Local by Social Midlands event, to be held in Coventry on the 12th November, but there are still places left if you would like to sign up to take part in a day of stimulation and participation to explore how social media can be used to create solutions to neighbourhood level problems.
We have an exciting line up of speakers, who will be sharing their ideas and experience with you in the morning, and then in the afternoon, we will be working together with residents from the Coventry New Deal for Communities area to propose, explore and challenge ideas that can be used to solve problems in their neighbourhood.
