The Improvement Service is offering a series of free workshops to support locally elected members to develop their skills and enhance their knowledge. Local government, and public services in Scotland, are facing challenges that will require the utmost skill and dedication from elected members to successfully navigate. These workshops will support elected members to develop their knowledge and skills to effectively carry out the complex roles and responsibilities expected of them.
The workshops are held on a cross-council, cross-party basis at venues across Scotland and spaces will be available on a first-come-first-served basis. Each workshop will be highly discursive and interactive, with elected members playing a full and active role.
If you have any questions about the programme, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This workshop will be facilitated by Irene Beautyman, Planning for Place Programme Manager, Improvement Service.
This workshop will explore the concept of Place-making as an approach for the planning, design and management of public spaces. Place-making helps to create spaces that promote the health, wellbeing and happiness of those that live and work in those spaces.
