9 June 2011 conference

Our two years of work supporting the Just Space Network and its member groups in pushing for changes to the London Plan is now drawing to a close – a close in which we
*   sum up what has been achieved (a lot in some ways:  it is a major landmark in popular participation in metropolitan plan-making)
*   consider strategies for the future
*   set a stronger course for the future of university / action-group collaboration.

To this end we held a conference on 9 June, led by community groups with some academics and students coming from across London to respond and to help think how research and teaching agendas can be changed.  More details and results are now at http://justspace2010.wordpress.com

The universities involved now include Birkbeck, King’s, Westminster… and a series of further initiatives are in the pipeline

  • a new postgraduate module in UCL starting in January 2012
  • a series of seminars starting October on alternatives for London
  • a ‘protocol’ on how to get the best out of university/comunity cooperaton

More on all these initiatives here.
