The role of schools in sustainable place-making: James Hampton, new makers bureau
Much has changed in the past few months. The Corona virus has highlighted many of the inequalities which exist in our society whilst also showing us another potential world, where cars do not dominate our streets, we fly less, there is good quality air to breath and our communities come together to support one another in times of need.
This other potential future is being proposed in Little Haldens, a new sustainable place in the Gomm Valley, High Wycombe. The talk will explore the vital role that schools play in sustainable place-making. Using the Little Haldens School project as an example we will set out the key issues and guiding principles used to define how the school relates to its setting and how the ethos of the place is imbued into its school, to create a mutually beneficial relationship between school and the wider community to promote sustainable practices.
