Network-Centric Resources Online Discussions


Since we began the Network-Centric Resources project at the beginning of 2017, we have been struck by the ingenuity and wisdom of resource designers in how they approach co-creation with networks and communities. The online discussion series provides a platform to share lessons learned and talk through tough challenges.

Our Next Online Discussion

Allen Gunn (aka ‘Gunner’) from Aspiration will talk about his experience coaching, advising and providing leadership to network-centric projects.

The common thread that connects all facets of Gunner’s work is a focus on open approaches to capacity building and knowledge sharing in social change efforts. Aspiration prioritizes work that supports and contributes to open communities of practice who create technology and content that benefit nonprofit and foundation efforts. Over the past twelve years, the organization has designed and facilitated almost 500 extremely open learning and knowledge sharing events, in over 40 countries across the globe, predicated on a philosophy of active participation that puts each participant “in control of their own destiny”, in contrast to approaches that place audiences in passive listening roles.

This online discussion will take place on Tuesday, April 23rd at 16:00 BST, 8:00 PDT (Check your time zone)
