We connect people who deliver projects on the ground, enabling them to share their learning with each other. Through our Public Sector Client Forum and Local Authority Urban Design Forum (LAUDF), we have supported the exchange of good practice and examples of how to create great places in Scotland. 90% of those involved in these events say it changes how they approach their work.
Many young professionals who are part of these networks develop to positions of leadership. Through supporting our professionals, even at the earliest stages of their career, we grow the skills needed for the future.
It is invaluable to have an opportunity to hear about what counterparts in other local authorities are doing and how they are approaching their work.
