Common Good Canteen is a monthly Zoom conversation in which Laura Gilchrist & Matt Wilson welcome a fascinating line up of special guests to discuss the big issues around money and meaning.

The canteen will create space in which members of different Common Change groups, and anyone else with an interest in pursuing the common good, can interact and be inspired. Hand-picked guests will be interviewed about what they’ve seen happening when when generosity and community collide.

We’ve called it a canteen because it will recreate, in virtual space, those special kind of chats that can just bubble up from nowhere in the staff canteen during lunch hour. Think of it a bit like a live podcast in which you can join in the conversation!

It’s live, it’s interactive, and it’s perfectly timed for your lunch hour.

Last Wednesday of every month, 1230-130
