A People Powered City

WE are a collective of people and organisations who want to create a people powered city! Our vision is of a city where everyone feels able to participate in creating the city they want to live and work in.

We are connecting people, places and communities to unlock potential and create positive change.

You can find out about WE by exploring our Playbook, which covers our What, our Why and our Guiding Principles, plus a whole lot more.
