How to make a city good

Changing London has just released a paper called ‘The Good City – where neighbourhoods thrive and everybody matters’. It draws on ideas from a number of opinion-formers and writers (I’m very honoured to be one of them) and attempts to offer practical ideas for improving the way London works and its quality as a place to live.

Ideas include:
- Planning and providing for social connection
- Taking a strategic approach to stimulating community activity
- Leading the transition to truly local services
- Championing the “willing citizen”
- Measuring and evaluating social and environmental performance.

You can find out more, and download the paper, at the Changing London website.
