What makes an Enterprising Place? What makes a place Can Do?

We need your help! On 20th April (NB:  this event has now ended) in Glasgow, we are going to do something different. We want to start the ball rolling on our Enterprising Places project. Over the last year we asked all our participants a few questions.

Ever tried to do something new or different?  Ever had a great idea and watched it get ground down?  Ever wanted to meet like minded people who can share your vision and also have expertise to help make it happen?

Not surprisingly we got a very strong response, so we thought it would be great to bring all our groups together in one room along with the people that shape our places and spaces.

Scotland is full of enterprising, can do people wanting to create better places.  They may be an individual, or a business group, or community trust but you can’t create can do places on your own.  Isolation does not work.  Why?

Nowadays we all have blinkers on.  Communities look at community issues, businesses look at their own business, planners look at planning and architects look at and so on.  Being boxed off and isolated is never going to help can do people create enterprising places.  It’s so draining finding the energy to find the energy.

What our groups told was “We need friends.  We need people to understand our vision and we need to hear from other people who have been there before.  People who make things happen.
