Launch Event: Putting Co-production into Practice

 Registration is closed for this event

How can we make sure communities feel fully involved in urban development that will affect the places they live? Join us as we release the findings of our major community engagement survey. 

In our survey, 45% of built environment professionals described their past co-production projects as “very successful”, compared to only 27% of community representatives.  

These findings suggest an expectation gap that developers must address if they want to increase trust in the regeneration process.  

We heard from over 100 people about the state of co-production in London, providing key insights that will drive community engagement practice. Residents and community groups responded alongside professionals from the public, private and third sectors. 

Sticking points include ensuring diverse community voices are heard and tapping into information flows that already exist within community networks

We need to make sure diverse community voices are heard and empower existing civic groups. The results suggest that tapping into information in community networks is key to improving co-production practices. 

With rich detail and quantitative insight, the data has strong implications to shape engagement strategies and guide investment in London. 

The event has been designed in partnership with community representatives. Delegates will discuss the results in roundtables and help to shape the next steps for the co-production programme.

No prior knowledge of co-production or technical ‘know-how’ is needed to attend this event.

When: Tuesday 16 April 2024, 9.00am - 11.30am, followed by informal networking

Where/Format: Face-to-face, London E1
