From getting ready to getting going: Our Place learning event

Tuesday 15 July 2014

Our Place is an exciting movement about building a movement for change in local communities. Run by Locality, and its delivery partners, including OPM, the project encourages collaborations between citizens, councils and other organisations at a very local level generate new solutions to our biggest local challenges.

On 24 June, OPM,  in partnership with Locality and LGA, hosted an event to enable people on the Our Place programme and those who are interested in the programme to share emerging ideas and activities with each other and build networks with some of our partners, Pioneers, Champions and Relationship Managers.

We had some exciting speakers from the Pioneer Neighbourhood Community Budgets Programme, Champions and Relationship Managers. Just to name a few:

These events set the scene for the next stage of the programme as Our Place areas work towards their Operational Plans, ready for November 2014.
