Now booking: Becoming a voice for change, featuring Farhana Yamin of Extinction Rebellion

Throughout the year SSE is hosting a range of events so that old friends can keep in touch, new connections can be made and the community of the SSE fellows can be continually warmed and strengthened.

Events will include special guest speakers, panel discussions and plenty of opportunities to socialise, network and catch up with others in the community.

We intend to host events around the SSE network but also encourage fellows to host their own events. We can help support and promote any event that you may wish to put on for the community by sharing across the network.

Please note that a small booking fee for each event applies, which is refunded if you attend the event.

If you have any questions about events or are hosting your own, get in touch with Charlie, charlie.wright@sse.org.uk

Becoming a voice for change:  how to organise a grassroots movement
With Farhana Yamin, Extinction Rebellion

30th April, SSE London

This event will explore how leaders of grassroots movements organise and empower their community to bring about change.

We will hear from Farhana Yamin about how Extinction Rebellion has grown into a global movement from its inception in May 2018. Farhana will speak on the tactics employed by ER to deploy such wide-spread actions that engage hundreds of thousands of protesters and have brought the climate emergency into the forethought of the public consciousness.

A panel including Farhana and two other community organisers will discuss and answer questions about how they have engaged their communities; bringing people together to enact change and create awareness in the face of wide-spread issues such as lack of social mobility, gentrification and pressures on small businesses.

Questions and lively debate is encouraged! There will also be plenty of time for mingling, making new connections and catching up with familiar faces.

Fellows Festive Fun

December, SSE London

Taking a break isn’t usually first on the agenda for our fellows community but we hope that you’ll join us for a casual evening of frivolity and socialising in the lead up to the Christmas period.

The evening will feature team games, including the world-famous, ‘Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You Quiz’, drinks, food and the always invaluable opportunity to spend some time reconnecting with the fellows community.

Failures and eff ups

11th February , SSE London

There isn’t an entrepreneur, social or otherwise, who hasn’t made some cringe-worthy mistakes. This light-hearted, judgement-free event is an opportunity for fellows to share and learn from each other whilst re-engaging with the SSE community and building on their own networks.

Attendees will hear from fellows with a wealth of experience when it comes to both failures and successes, as well as having the opportunity to discuss learning from their own experiences. As always with the Fellowship Series there will be opportunities to relax and chat with others from the community.
