What now?

Many many thanks to all those who helped make the Leeds Summat Gathering 2011 such a huge success: see below for the full list of amazing people and groups. Click here for videos, photos, reports and more from the day; and most notably, **click here to download a full evaluation report from the event**.

But now is not the end, just the start of summat new. The Summat was never just about one day. It’d be plain lazy of us (all!) just to have had a nice day together – then do nowt. So the question is: WHAT NOW?

If you were there, re-visit the brochure (click here) and fill out the ‘What next?’ back page. What ideas or comments that grabbed or inspired you? What people or organisations do you want to stay in touch with? And what changes do you now want to make in my life?

Also, do stay in touch – with one another, and with us. Keep talking, and plotting global change! Email us if you’re not already on our mailing list. If you find these tools handy, find us on Twitter and Facebook. Please tell us your plans and stories. What are you going to do to help make change where you are? We’re very keen to gather your stories… and to HELP. We may be able to help you, with mentors, resources, funding, follow-up events, linking you with other people, etc. Let us know!

Finally, we are exploring options for a third Summat in 2013: watch this space for unfolding plans…
