This Open Forum in Glasgow presented an opportunity to give some constructive thought to enduring themes in regeneration policy and practice that have emerged during the recent SURF Open Forum programme. In doing so, SURF sought delegates’ views on appropriate future action and developments around these themes.

An integral part of the Open Forum programme is that it reflects the needs, views and aspirations of regeneration practitioners and activists as well as policy-makers. Subsequently, the outcomes of this particular event will be used by SURF to inform the content, structure and intended audiences for the continuing programme.

An opening keynote presentation from SURF laid out the lessons from the Open Forum programme.

A second presentation was given by Ian Clark of RPS Consulting on the theme of learning from evaluations in designing outcome targets.

The event also featured four themed and facilitated workshops led by representatives from Local People Leading (Community Empowerment), Brodies LLP (Partnership Working), Resolution Scotland (People or Place?) and Glasgow Caledonian University (Catalysts and Drivers in Regeneration).
