Why the revolution will not be tweeted: the importance of strong ties in building of a better world

What types of relationships are needed to build a better world? To what extent can new social media contribute to social change? What does the historical evidence suggest? How can we implement this in our organising today? Jura welcomes Nicholas Harrigan, social network researcher, to facilitate a discussion about the types of relationships that have the potential for positive social change. The starting point for the discussion will be a recent article by Malcolm Gladwell in the New Yorker magazine ‘Small Change’. Participants are encouraged to read the article and bring along their comments and criticisms for the discussion: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2010/10/04/101004fa_fact_gladwell

This discussion afternoon is FREE!
