Our project will look to engage local people (particularly young entrepreneurs) on how they can use innovative ideas to bring people together; support vulnerable groups and forge new business ideas - which can created opportunities in the most unlikely of places. This project will involved the following:

- Concept art of vibrant, bustling future inner-city communities
- Discussions and a forum on what the future of businesses, services and community space should look and feel like.
- Offer support to young entrepreneurs on how we can make there ideas happen.

The project will focus in Lambeth, South London (brixton, stockwell etc) where we will engage businesses and local residents on how they can be creative and innovative towards generating a sense of community/ commerce within the high street areas and inner city communities.

This will also help educate residents and groups on how they can utilize any existing community assets, public space to create local opportunities

What we'll deliver:

  • consultations, engagement activities
  • create an exhibition of the design
  • design concept art based on the characteristics of a particular Lambeth high street
  • develop a Lambeth based forum to discuss urban design and innovate new business
  • support local residents and entrepreneurs towards implementing some of the best and practice ideas

Why it's a great idea:

This project will support people who are unemployed or people who are considering starting a business to think ahead about the needs of the wider community in future, and how they can play a role towards shaping it. Areas like Lambeth are undergoing enormous change, so it's important that local residents can play a greater role in the changes so communities can continue to thrive and grow.

We believe if we can educate local people to generate ideas on how to support this growth through commerce, innovation and community-building then these communities will become more resilient and cohesive for all groups.

In addition, we have highlighted Lambeth, Brixton as an area which suffers from large numbers of unemployment and deprivation which we feel compelled to help tackle.

We want anyone who is passionate about Lambeth to share their ideas, views and insight with us on we can improve the high street for future communities

Steps to get it done:

  • Engaged young entrepreneur(s)
  • Follow-up activities, project or businesses created
  • Exhibition(s) delivered
  • Survey and engagement activities

The project will hope to engage with existing local businesses, vso and community groups on how we can support these young entrepreneurs and unemployed residents to increase social impact in the area.
