On Monday afternoon I was at the Groucho Club in Soho to meet Paul Twivy from the Big Society Network. Paul’s background is in marketing, advertising and branding: he was involved in Comic Relief, helped to set up Time Bank and co-founded The Big Lunch. The Big Society Network is an independent organisation which intends to act as an umbrella for a variety of relationships between Government, business and civic society in order to encourage people to engage more with their communities. The Big Society Network’s flagship project is ‘Your Square Mile’ which will attempt to create ‘a union for citizens’ to encourage citizens ‘to be the change they want to see in the world via the square mile where they live and/or work’. I met Paul with representatives of Community Matters and the Central Council for Physical Recreation to explore how we might work with the Big Society Network on the proposed annual ‘Big Society Day’ and other initiatives and to emphasise the importance of local arts and sports groups to the notion of a ‘Big Society’.
