The #PlaceIndex: Engaging communities post-pandemic

About this event

As the nation emerges from lockdown, places face numerous challenges, risks and opportunities. The inaugural Place Index from Social shines a light on the range of issues and concerns communities have when it comes to the future of their local areas. From scepticism in the levelling up agenda - a third think their areas will be left behind more affluent areas, to concerns about the future of the high-street – 37% believe their high street has no future, this is an important milestone for all those involved in placemaking.

This webinar brings together business leaders with an interest in places to discuss the challenges presented in the report and suggest possible routes to resolving them including:

  • Building and maintaining trust
  • Engaging people
  • Ensuring all voices are heard in community planning
