On 3rd June I attended the conference Skills and Knowledge for Sustainable Communities in London and was very pleased to find that one of the case studies mentioned related to the regeneration of Attwood Green in Birmingham.
I think it is nice to get recognition from other regions, but I believe it is even nicer to deliver valuable learning from the work done in our region.
The case study highlights:
the regeneration of Attwood Green is viewed by many as an innovative approach to urban renewal and may provide a good practice framework for similar projects.
The case study was developed by Napier University in Edinburgh – a summary (PDF, 762kb) is available.
Other projects from the joint research initiative discussed at the event are available from the University of Strathclyde. I’ve written more about this initiative in a previous post on a new approach to skills for sustainable communities.
However, I do not want to stop here. Key learning I took away from the day was not related to Attwood Green but to other relevant examples that must be happening in the region, and we do not hear too much about them.
Think about your organisation or your community. Is there anything happening there that can deliver valuable learning to others?
Would you like to share your successes and achievements with the region or even further?
I realised that this blog can be a perfect space to share, learn and celebrate what the West Midlands is achieving… what do you think?
No matter how big or small it is, if it delivers learning I’d love to hear about it. Please can you take the time to add a comment to this post.
As I said before, it would be nice to get recognition from other regions, but I believe it would be even nicer to deliver valuable learning from the work done in our region.
