10th Anniversary Conference

30th - 30st October
11:00 am
Two Days of Powerful Talks

What next for the civic movement? 

The 2-day conference will bring together a range of speakers including:

  1. Griff Rhys Jones, Civic Voice President

  2. Sue Manns, RTPI President

  3. Matthew Carmona,  Place Alliance Chair


Each speaker will be representing a different background and profession, from national policy makers to community groups, who are contributing to the national agenda on public participation in placemaking. 


The workshops, walks, talks and speakers will all link into the Civic Movement's priorities to put 'public participation at the heart of places'. We will use the conference to publish research, organise workshops and highlight specific lessons and to consider, what next for the civic movement?

The conference starts on September 4th at 11am and will be finished by 4pm on Saturday 5th September. An evening dinner will take place on the Friday evening.
