Where We Live Now

A series of activities centred on the theme of place and place-based policymaking.
Closed for applications

The British Academy worked with a variety of organisations and individuals to discuss place – what does it mean to people, at what scale do people relate to place, and is there a way we can use this understanding to improve the design and delivery of policy?

The Academy has published a set of reports on place-based policymaking – aligning the design and resourcing of policy at the most appropriate scale of place, in order to develop meaningful solutions, which improve people's lives. 

This work has demonstrated that, particularly in a devolving world, place can offer a useful lens to reconsider how best to deliver critical services including those focused on community support, health and wellbeing, social and benefit supports, education, skills and lifelong learning in a more integrated and effective way.
