This is the North

Something NEW for 2019
People's Powerhouse Local Events

Share what’s working - Help spread the word!

We're very excited about this year’s Convention in Sunderland.  However, we know that attending events doesn’t work for everyone.  This year in partnership with Power to Change we want to support you to tell your story, to highlight the work of organisations across the North who already are the People’s Powerhouse. 

This is the North will include local events, all building a diverse, inclusive, prosperous North.  We hope it is an opportunity for you to share how you are making a difference.  The theme can be anything linked to the Charter.

Why not host your own People’s Powerhouse local activity or event?  Be one of a series showcased at our Sunderland Convention to a larger audience. 

Showcase the work you’re doing!

Contribute to the People’s Powerhouse Movement, by asking us to enter your event on the Interactive Map

This is an opportunity to get your partners and the people you work with together to celebrate your work and spread the word about how YOU are part of the People’s Powerhouse.  This could be anything, from an hours’ get-together with a cuppa, to a full days’ conference. 

The choice is yours.  It could be you and your team, an activity that brings local delivery partners, businesses, councils, arts, heritage, sport, music, colleges, health, community groups or anyone else in your area together!

You may even have an event planned already which promotes one or more of the foundations in the Charter – tell us about it, we’ll promote it as part of the #PeoplesPowerhouse #ThisIsTheNorth series of events.   

If you want to take part

  • Fill out the form on this page and we'll enter your event on the Interactive Map.

  • We will promote your activity using #ThisIsTheNorth #PeoplesPowerhouse.

  • If invited, one of our People’s Powerhouse Team will join in!

  • We’ll share materials you can use as well as top tips to promote your event, please let us know if this is something, you’d like support with.

Tell us what you plan to do during your #ThisIsTheNorth event. Tell us how you plan to use one or more of the foundations in the People’s Powerhouse Charter during your event to celebrate the North and challenge our hope of the future of the North:
