Civil society – our shared space and work for the public good – faces startling new pressures and possibilities in this dynamic, digital age. What trends, issues, and challenges will shape or shake up civil society in 2018?

Digital Impact kicked off the new year with a virtual roundtable of experts, scholars, and practitioners to identify key trends and share predictions for 2018, including insights from Blueprint 2018, Lucy Bernholz’s annual industry forecast on philanthropy and digital civil society.

In sharing their personal predictions, wildcards, and favorite (or least favorite) buzzwords, panelists touched on the new U.S. tax policy, giving days, rising inequality, the respective roles of government and civil society in serving the public good, and much more.
