“The Academy's webinars opened a door for our staff team on to some of the best cities in Europe. The learning has helped our different departments understand some of the key principles of place-making – from culture to health."

Helping places respond to immediate and longer-term challenges
The Academy’s place diagnostics help those involved in building and sustaining successful places to understand the factors that underpin or undermine their success.
Diagnostics can be used to strengthen local relationships, commission advice, lobby and bid for support, attract investment, stimulate local participation and lift local self-image.
Bringing the best case studies to your teams
Online talks organised specifically for your place or organisation, showcasing the latest ideas and practices being employed to overcome immediate and longer-term challenges – from the effects of Covid-19 to the Climate Emergency.
Talks can be directed to a team, or opened up to include a wide range of stakeholders, to broaden consensus on the right path to tackle challenges.
