To a More Ambitious Place: Debate Series 2014/15

As we approach elections in the UK, we believe it is important that we keep place on the agenda and create a space for a dialogue between the different collaborators in placemaking.

In partnership with the Open University and the Academy of Urbanism, The Glass-House Debate Series 2014/15 ‘To a More Ambitious Place’ seeks to question and explore our ambitions for our places.

How can we achieve our ambitions for our places and what are those things – in our culture, governance and practice – that are stopping us from fulfilling our goals?

Our Series will bring together a diverse audience and a range of perspectives in placemaking to debate the issues, challenge thinking and stimulate lively discussion.

Sheffield / 19 November 2014

London / 18 March 2015
Do we accept the status quo in place?
