Tessy Britton, Chief Executive, Participatory City Foundation
Tessy Britton is Founding CEO of Participatory City Foundation, an organisation established to create a large citizen-led participation ecosystem in Barking and Dagenham in London. The initiative is scaling up a new approach to encouraging and supporting participation, building regular activities into the grain of everyday life to build sustainable neighbourhoods of the future. The approach has been researched and tested over the last 8 years and aims to offer cities new ways in which the centre of gravity moves away from problem focused approached towards citizens’ talents and ideas.
Through this lecture Tessy will describe the overall ambitions and achievements of the initiative so far, as well as give more detail about the underlying models, and how the initiative aims to replicate in other cities.
