The Place Standard Tool

11 June 2019, Glasgow, Scotland, UK

NHS Health Scotland, Scottish Government, Architecture Design Scotland and the WHO European Healthy Cities Network would like to invite you to attend the 1st International Conference on place and the Place Standard.

The event will consider, celebrate and seek to further progress effective place based approaches across Scotland, the UK and internationally highlighting the importance of this way of working in improving health and well-being and reducing inequalities. It will bring together a wide range of participants across the public, private and voluntary sectors and provide a forum to exchange knowledge, discuss shared challenges and plan future ways of working.

The conference will be held at The Old Fruit Market, Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland with plenary speakers to include Sir Harry Burns, parallel sessions and opportunities for local, national and international delegates to share good practice and lessons learned.

We will soon be inviting case studies from communities, voluntary, public and private sectors to showcase at the conference. The case studies will identify and share good practice and learning around the application of place based approaches to service delivery including the experiences to date of applying the Place Standard tool.
