All our projects are delivered with partners

We see again and again that the art of good collaborative working is essential, and hold it as an ongoing enquiry.

We seek to lead not through stepping out in front but rather by working alongside others, catalysing and supporting initiatives that lead to stronger communities and more resilient places.

Learning is at the core of what we do. In this first phase of our existence we are building multi-stakeholder partnerships around our five interconnected strands of activity – the resilience strategy, ecology, arts and design, economy and learning.


Engaging and empowering citizens to care for their environment and to work at whole-systems level.


Giving local people a greater sense of belonging and opening up the question of what it means to be a citizen of this place.


Promoting sustainable, low-carbon enterprise in this region as part of a long-term resiliency strategy


Offering direct experience of real-world problem-solving to people of all ages in sustainable economy and ecology.
