The Neighbourhood Project is building a global movement of local people, shaping projects that make their neighbourhoods stronger and more connected.
These practical placemaking projects breathe new life into local spaces, while inspiring people to connect. At the same time, the program offers strategic support behind the scenes to help governments and urban managers become more community-led, reduce red tape, and embed long-term change.
Join us to see how a single project in your area can drive long-term systemic change in process improvements behind the scenes.
After 3 months of intensive workshops, the Neighbourhood Project teams had their final bootcamp session today - getting ready to pitch in 2 weeks time! Can’t wait to see these ideas come to life #TNPNews ... See MoreSee Less

I would love to be there if I wasn't working.
Please tell us that the Sunshine Coast Council was there because they need all the help they can possibly get.
The past week at #placemakingweek2017 #amsterdam has been full of practical insights into community-led, human scale cities from Lima to Nairobi.
It was an absolute privilege to share our impact stories and lessons learned from Australia and the #neighbourhoodproject, and encouraging to hear others on the other side of the globe faced the same challenges. There is a strong and growing movement to make cities better for people, by encouraging citizen-led urban development.
