Ed the Campervan

Making Better Places Together

The PLACED team are excited to announce a brand new project which will see Ed, our campervan, helping to make Better Places Together.

Ed will be the focal point of a series of public events across Liverpool, offering a unique mobile consultation and workshop venue. We will be running mini-workshops, hands-on activities and debates, enabling people to share their views and ideas specific to our location as well as wider built environment issues.

We’ll also be showcasing projects that are already leading the way in involving local people in the design and decision making process about their built environment.

The project aims to highlight the importance and value of local people engaging with, informing and shaping the design and decision making process in the built environment.

Follow activity on our blog updates below as well as on Facebook and Twitter. And more importantly, join us at our events to show that we can make Better Places Together.
