Where We Live Next: project evidence hub
The materials in this evidence hub look at the role of place and place-sensitive policy making in addressing issues of environmental sustainability, as well as how engaging with people in the places where they live leads to better and more effective and efficient policy making in practice, reflecting the diversity of communities and the local environments in which they live.
Evidence synthesis report
A summary of insights from our commissioned research.
Understanding the role of place in environmental sustainability
In 2022, the British Academy commissioned six projects that examined various facets of environmental sustainability using a place-sensitive lens. This report synthesises this evidence base and brings together insights to help stakeholders better understand the role of place-sensitive policymaking and its application to environmental sustainability. In doing so, it examines how engaging with people in the places where they live leads to better and more effective and efficient policymaking in practice, reflecting the diversity of communities and local environments.
