At Cumberland Lodge we have a unique way of empowering people to tackle the causes and effects of social division.
We embrace 'difficult conversations' and work with people from all sectors, academic disciplines, generations, faiths, ideological perspectives and political affiliations.
In all of our work, we aim to bring together leaders and influencers with students and young people, to facilitate an intergenerational exchange of views and mutual learning.
This helps us to:
Inspire and connect leaders and people of influence to build networks across sectors and academic disciplines, and to explore practical opportunities for positive social change
Support and equip students and young people with the skills and motivation to promote social progress and develop into future leaders and change-makers.
We provide an inclusive environment for candid conversations, and encourage people to 'disagree well' by openly exchanging their views, respecting difference, and actively listening to others.
Attendance at some of our events is by invitation only, because physical space is limited and we need to ensure a balanced and diverse representation of backgrounds and perspectives.
This diversity is important for enhancing the quality of dialogue and debate, but we warmly welcome all enquiries about attending.
