Urban neighbourhoods: Five ways to make a difference
This short video introduces key findings from the pilot research that informed the development of the Smart Urban Intermediaries project.
The researchers found five ways in which people seek to make a difference in urban neighbourhoods: enduring, struggling, facilitating, organising, and trailblazing.
These approaches can be combined productively, but they can also clash. The Smart Urban Intermediaries project seeks to understand how this takes place, and to foster productive dialogue between people taking local action in communities across Europe.
Dr Oliver Escobar, co-director of What Works Scotland, is the Principal Investigator in the UK for the Smart Urban Intermediaries project.
