Some thoughts (in no real order) following tonight’s #civilsocietyfutures event:

1) There’s an important balance to be struck between ‘empowerment’ of communities/groups & supporting good leadership. Current trend is to focus on the former, often to detriment of the latter.
2) I very much agree with @AnnaFowlie that there is much to be optimistic and hopeful about in the sector. Yes, there are big societal challenges and operational changes at the moment, but it’s not all doom and gloom. Lots to be positive about.
3) Many of our traditional big institutions (media, political systems, charities etc) are based on very old operating models that have not/are not keeping pace with demographic, social & technological change. This can lead to a very negative prism through which they frame issues.
