The perfect combination or poles apart?

Asset based community development (ABCD) has been embraced by Leeds city council as an approach to supporting communities whereby they are enabled to build on their assets and do good things for themselves. So could digital technologies play a useful role in helping build virtual as well as physical communities? Or is digital media making us less connected and reducing our collective challenges to individualised symptoms that we are expected to take responsibility for through ever pervasive self-tracking and behaviour change applications? Can ABCD and the digital sector work together or even learn from each other?

We will chew over these questions and more in a lively panel debate with Mick Ward, Chief Officer Transformation and Innovation, who is a strong advocate for ABCD, Matt Edgar, Head of Design at NHS Digital, Roz Davies, Director of Social Inclusion at Good Things Foundation, and Howard Bradley from LS14 Trust, a community-led, not-for-profit organisation making a difference in Seacroft, Swarcliffe and Whinmoor.

This event is suitable for anyone interested in innovation in communities, human-centred design, and the future of digital innovation in health and care in our city.

This event is brought to you in partnership with Leeds City Council and NHS Digital.
