2024, April - 'Pride of Place for your Place'

Nurturing pride in the places people live in and grow in has never been more important. Everyone is talking about the need to grow pride of place, whether in our neighbourhoods, our towns, our cities or across our regions. In this video we explain how, using Community Passport, Birmingham and the West Midlands is using this placemaking tool to empower more and more people to be engaged and involved in the shaping and the promotion of the places they live in and grow up in. The benefits, economically and socially, are huge.
