Supporting Neighbourhood Organizers for a Stronger City
Co-Presenters: Karen Oldham and Vanessa Kinsley, City of London
Neighbourhoods are about people partnering up to make great places to live, work and play. London's Strengthening Neighbourhoods Strategy, one of the city’s first such cross-departmental initiatives, equips community leaders to engage their neighbours and plan for great neighbourhoods. This presentation looks at how the program employs leadership training, expanded networking, neighbourhood action planning, community associations, safety audits, matching funds, unique equipment and other tools and supports to build a stronger city from the neighbourhood up.
