A number of civic societies have their own histories, researched and written by local volunteers. These are expected to grow rapidly in number as many civic societies approach their 50th anniversary. Yet, the movement lacks the story of its roots and its significance and the project is designed to address this gap. The benefits of understanding and celebrating the importance of the civic movement have rarely been more important. There is growing recognition of the importance of social and community action and we are at the formative stage in the development of a new chapter for the civic movement with the establishment of Civic Voice following the closure of the Civic Trust. This project presents an opportunity to develop this new phase on inspiring foundations.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Remarkably, despite its importance, there is no true history of the civic movement or its relationships to other social movements and changes in society over nearly 200 years. We want to change this.
Steps to get it done:
At a time when politicians talks "localism" we want this publication to demonstrate to people that "localism" has been taken place in the civic society movement for over 150 years.
