How to resource the work of collaboration between communities and municipalities: the need for funding for processes
Presenters: Eleanor Besley-Gould, Peter Lipman and Nicolas Krausz
Facilitator: Nicola Hillary
Brief summary: How do we fund this work? This is a crucial challenge. The processes of collaboration and partnership between community groups and municipalities can be difficult to define and predict. Our co-presenters have a variety of relevant expertise and Nicolas Krausz can give insights about what this challenge looks like from a funder’s point of view. We need to request: strictly no pitching please! Also, we’d love to hear any questions in advance as well as during the webinar.
