For this season of Glass-House chats, we’ve taken inspiration for the Chat topics from our previous attendees and the latest trends and debates in the fields of design and placemaking. If you’d like to contribute, please email with your suggestions.

About this Session

Universities are increasingly involving their students in live projects led by communities. How can the talents of students best contribute to community-led design initiatives, and what will the students learn in the possess? How can we ensure that this interaction is beneficial to all involved? 

At this Chat we will be looking at the opportunities that matching live student projects with live community-led and community-based initiatives can bring, and exploring some of the key considerations for making these productive and mutually beneficial collaborations. 

Please book tickets for this session here.

About the Series

Glass-House Chats is a safe space to ask questions, explore ideas, approaches and methods, share learning and make connections. These are free sessions, conceived for local authority officers but open to all who are interested, to help build confidence and capacity in the sectors to engage communities in design and placemaking

The sessions will be chaired by The Glass-House Chief Executive Sophia de Sousa, who will briefly introduce the theme and then open the floor for an informal and open discussion among participants.

To ensure space for meaningful discussion, places are limited to a small group. Key discussion points will be collated and shared after each session.
