Civil Society Consulting CIC has launched a new, regular online event Book Club for Wellbeing and Connection, aimed at civil society workers, volunteers, trustees and service users.
The book club is an informal, low pressure, monthly event where attendees can explore the latest thinking on reducing loneliness and improving community wellbeing. Beyond that, each session is also an opportunity for people to share, learn, and build connections with one another.
Reading the book is not essential for participation – rather, organisers want to hear your thoughts and experiences of the topic on hand.
The sessions will be facilitated by Kate Shurety, the former executive director (now associate) of The Campaign to End Loneliness. Each session will begin with with a short Q&A between the author and Kate, followed by an opportunity for all participants to discuss and share ideas.
The next instalment of the book club will take place on Tuesday 13 April at 7pm.
The guest this session will be Noreena Hertz, author of The Lonely Century. Noreena’s book traces the roots of the loneliness epidemic, and offers hopeful solutions for individuals and communities to reconcile and reconnect.
The first ten participants to sign up will receive a free copy of the book.
