We are increasingly living with the impact of our climate crisis, with floods, fires, drought and other natural shock waves hitting communities around the globe. With many parts of the UK and the planet being affected in different ways, is a more inclusive approach to recovery and placemaking an opportunity to level the playing field?

When our communities, our places and our planet face crisis, how can we work together to provide more equitable assistance? How can we use placemaking to develop recovery strategies that lead to more sustainable urban environments and ways of living?

Join us for Inclusive Crisis Recovery, a free co-design event in collaboration with students and tutors from the Bartlett School of Planning at UCL, where we will explore these issues through discussion, debate and playful making activities followed by informal networking.

Refreshments and informal networking from 6:00 for a prompt start at 6.30pm 

This is a free event but places are limited. Book now to secure your place.

About the series

People, Place, Planet is our theme for The Glass-House 2023/24 WEdesign series. 

As we continue to shape our places, we are faced with the huge challenge of balancing our personal needs, the collective needs of our communities and those of our increasingly fragile planet.

This series will aim to identify and explore the opportunities and synergies that exist when we strive to balance people, place and planet in placemaking. 

How can we think differently about how we shape our places? How can we collaborate more through design and placemaking to value and respect people, place and planet equally?

WEdesign is The Glass-House’s annual series of free interactive public events, held online and in-person in cities across the UK, where we explore collaborative design in placemaking through discussion, debate and playful co-design activities.
