LGiU Fortnightly 16th November: What do parking fines, fake news & Star Wars have in common?

Answer: They all tell a story about public trust, our pet topic for 2018! This week we look at our Daily News stories and recent LGiU work through the lens of trust, from overzealous parking enforcement and fractious community relations during estate regeneration projects, to the spectre of ‘fake news’ and how Russian bots wrought havoc of the Star Wars franchise.

In this vein, Ingrid speaks to Paul Simpson about our joint workshop series on engaging communities in estate regeneration projects and the importance of building a resilient and longterm foundation of trust.

Plus other stories about Gove’s new recycling plans, ziplines in the Lake District and oddly expensive leather chairs.

Hosted by Jen Glover and Ingrid Koehler.
