HEAR Equality and Human Rights Network would like to invite you to the following free event:
A Place for Equality?
How we use places and spaces in London is becoming more and more obviously an equality issue in recent times. Whether it is about re-development in local areas, the ‘gentrification’ of parts of London making them unaffordable for those who live there and their families, who has say in planning local changes or large scale ones in central London, such as the pedestrianisation of Oxford Street, the use and provision of green spaces, or whether we can use the streets and pavements safely and with confidence, and how we make best use of land and community assets, these are all equality issues.
In addition to these more practical aspects HEAR members have also been thinking about issues of power when it comes to who owns, controls and maps spaces, and what this means for all of us.
HEAR invites you to a discussion workshop to consider some of these issues together, get updates on some of the work HEAR has been doing and is planning for the near future and provide an opportunity to say what support you need to take more control of the spaces and places in London where you live and that you use every day.
There will be updates on what is going on with the Draft London Plan and how HEAR members and partners have been able to influence this, and you will here about a proposed new project:
Hear about a proposed project from London Plus – London: Land & Communities – a development proposal to support London’s Civil Society Infrastructure organisations to be better able to help to advocate for groups to make use of local land and community assets.
We will be asking:
- What are the key areas that your group would like to engage with – eg: Community Buildings, Housing, Development?
- What are the challenges that you have faced/- what kind of support would you find most useful?
- Local advocacy – do you have any good examples? where do you go for support? What are the gaps and how could this project help?
The event is free but places are limited, if you would like to attend please email: firstname.lastname@example.org including details of any dietary or access needs.
We look forward to seeing you there.
