Managing the future
MetadataShow full item record
Volunteering is an essential and necessary component of life in a modern industrial society. Both governments and volunteer networks need each other. Both work in harmony, both deliver different things, both have a different part of the action. The collage of the future is to paint a canvas of substance and process focusing particularly on the process. The future I would argue, is about knowledge and networks. We in government need you - we need your knowledge and we need your networks. We need you to further enrich the lives of all - to build the sort of community we all strive for.
