Join us with guest Francis Sealey to talk about expanding the public square in the 21st century - how can we recreate our future through dialogue?

We'll discuss the need, desire, impacts and opportunities of public dialogue in social change. What difference does this all make?

Francis Sealey was a Producer and Executive Producer for many years working for both the BBC Open University and the Community Programmes Unit. He has been active in politics and community action for most of his life, being a Parliamentary Candidate in 1974 and founder and activist in a number of social & community networks. Since 1993 he has been a freelance producer working with a number of training, public and voluntary organisations. In 2007 he founded 21st Century Network (now GlobalNet21) to help recreate public space and bring genuine debate back to public life.

In four years GlobalNet21 has grown significantly and now hosts many meetings, webinars and podcasts and uses social networks as an important way to publically engage. Francis Sealey is now Chairman of GlobalNet21 and with others is now responsible for its activities and development.

Francis Sealey has also published a book called “Global Public Square; Identity and Action in the 21st Century” that looks at personal and social change and the relationship between thewm in that age of social networks.
