UbN Scotland: Place
The world is changing, and so are Scotland’s places. Policy makers and researchers will have to work collaboratively with communities in the coming years to improve people’s lives by making sustainable, liveable and productive places. This will play a key role in delivering on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, as well as our national outcomes. We live in challenging times, but better places will be an important part of our response to Scotland’s strategic priorities of net zero, child poverty and a wellbeing economy. Changes to our places will not always be easy. People care about their neighbourhoods and rightly and reasonably expect that new development should improve their lives, rather than undermining what they value most. This lunch and learn will explore how we engage in conversations around place.
The event will take place on July 20, 2023 at 12:00 BST.
Dr Ria Dunkley, Senior Lecturer Pedagogy, Praxis and Faith at the University of Glasgow chairs the fourth webinar in the UrbanByNature Lunch and Learn series. We will hear the following talks:

There will be time to ask our panellists questions.
