The People, Place, Planet event series encouraged participants to identify and explore the opportunities and synergies that exist when we strive to balance people, place and planet in placemaking. 

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.

This year we worked with our partner universities, students and guest speakers and contributors around the UK to delve into the question of how we can balance our personal needs, the collective needs of our communities and those of our increasingly fragile planet.

This booklet brings together the voices from across the series from all four in-person events alongside our online Debate and Glass-House Chat, and features excerpts from this series’ Think Pieces and participant blogs capturing the events. WEdesign 2023/24’s in-person events were held in partnership with UCL Bartlett School of Planning, The Glasgow School of Art’s, Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh School of Architecture, Newcastle University’s School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape and The University of Sheffield School of Architecture.
