Ed The Campervan Helps Makes Better Places Together

We’re excited to launch our Ed, our camper van, and our new Better Places Together Campaign for Liverpool.

Our new camper van called Ed will be helping make Liverpool a better place to live. We’ll be using Ed as the focal point of a series of public events, with more than 1,000 people expected to take part in 10 events as part of the ‘Better Places Together’ campaign over the coming months.

In our unique and mobile engagement and workspace space, we are set to tour the city, providing mini-workshops, hands-on activities and organised debates, which tackle topics specific to the immediate pitch location as well broader built environment issues.

The PLACED team will be launching the project with an event in Ropewalks Square, Bold Street on the June 12-4pm where we will be starting a discussion about how the site could be improved, with hands-on activities for all ages to engage in.

Director of PLACED, Jo Harrop explains;

‘The events planned under our Better Places Together project are designed to celebrate the beauty of our city, to appreciate the challenges we face and to invite the public to engage in design of their local built environment in a fun, captivating and sociable way.’

As well as events, we’ll be showcasing some of the most innovative, community based projects that are changing the shape of our built environment.

Follow the project through our blogs and social media, and make sure you join us at an event to help make Better Places Together.
