Place has an enormous influence on the quality of our lives and our impact on our environment.
And so, the partnership behind the Place Standard Tool have developed a new website – Our Place - devoted to promoting the benefits of place and place-based working.
The site will help to support communities, public, third and private sectors to take forward place-based approaches, helping to make positive differences across communities in Scotland.
Our Place promotes place-based working, acting as a central resource, sharing supportive materials, tools, case studies and innovative examples to help shape investment and service decision making. It has information, tools and resources to help support the development of places and services that improve our health, our prosperity, our quality of life and protects our environment. But Our Place is intended to be a place for everyone, with contributions from many perspectives.
If you have learning and resources you would like to see as part of Our Place then e-mail [email protected] and help to translate the benefits of place into positive outcomes for people and the planet.
