The Neighbourhood Project is an initiative to make it easier for communities to transform underutilised neighbourhood spaces into public space, by helping local governments work for community action, instead of against it. The program's systemic approach addresses process as well as people and places, to unlock common barriers to resilient, thriving and inclusive neighbourhoods. By helping city councils in Australia innovate and de-risk local leadership. Jessica will discuss this program that will ultimately develop a model and toolkit that governments everywhere can adopt to support their communities with confidence.
