COVID-19 has created a very unique moment in time, one that brings with it a lot of uncertainty, personal and societal challenges, a breakdown of the old ‘normal’ and perhaps an illumination of priorities as well as an opportunity to shape the future.
Throughout SHIFT we will explore how we as citizens, as local communities, as organisations, and as governments take this opportunity to do things better. How can we work together better? How can we create a better vision for our collectives and shared spaces?
These are some of the questions we will explore throughout the day, covering topics such as reimagining town centres, the power of citizen led action, fostering collaborative team innovation, and the role of arts and creativity in the recovery.
This digital event is about how we can imagine a brighter future and cooperate together to work towards that vision.

Time: 9.30am to 1.30pm Western Standard Time / 11.30am to 3.30pm Eastern

What is the programme?
How will the conference be delivered online?
The SHIFT Cooperative Innovation DigiConference will be delivered using two digital tools.
Zoom: Video content will be delivered live and recorded using Zoom which enables speakers to be distributed across the world, polling functions and breakout rooms for higher levels of interactivity. Attendees can join the video program from their desktop or mobile Zoom application.
The Town Team Hub hosted on Mighty Networks: The program for the day including speaker notes, schedule, sponsor information, attendee profiles, and attendee chat will be delivered using the Town Team Hub hosted on Mighty Networks. The Town Team Hub currently uses Mighty Networks, and this event will be a sub-group on the Town Team Hub.
SHIFT attendees will be provided access to the Mighty Network two weeks in advance of the conference to allow time to create a profile, acquaint yourself with the program and software, and to meet fellow attendees!
Will the content be recorded?
Short answer is yes!
We want to ensure that the ideas and conversations on the day are accessible to everyone beyond the actual date of the conference. We are hosting concurrent sessions, so attendees will be able to go back after the conference to view the content covered in different sessions.
Additionally by using Mighty Networks and the Town Team Hub as our platform, we hope these conversation will continue and attendees will collaborate after the date of the event.
Am I a Town Team Member (and get a free ticket)?
The free tickets are for Town Team volunteers who help one of the 46 registered Town Teams listed on this page – https://www.townteammovement.com/town-teams/
They are the heroes of our movement, so we provide what we can to them for free. Please bear in mind that ticket sales help to fund Town Team Movement’s activities and support for Town Teams.
