The power of people in place making


Battersea Power Station is a new town center in London’s Central activities zone. Its complex story, however, didn’t start out this way as you will learn by attending this session. Sarah Banham, Head of Communities & Sustainability at the organization, will focus on the efforts behind the holistic strategy to create a place that people want to be in and build a community out of a former industrial brownfield site. The importance of engaging with the surrounding community from a very early stage. How this evolves into a comprehensive sustainability strategy that put people at the center. How to engage and to adapt such megaprojects over time not least because of a pandemic. How to ensure that all parties involved in such an undertaking, from financial investors to stakeholders at large, benefit from the project. The importance of human activity and ownership to the creation of place. All this and more will be addressed during the session by Sarah on November 18th, Join us for a masterclass not to be missed out on!
