Faith and Place policy briefing launch

Activity: Public engagement and outreachInvited talk

Description

Sponsored by Stephen Timms MP, the Labour party faith envoy, we held the policy briefing launch at the Jubilee Room in the House of Commons. The focus was on raising the profile of the briefing and thus the network, and the high profile event drew in additional interested parties - so Birmingham City Council, Bishop of Southwark, CofE national ecumenical officer, Land Use Consultants, Inter Faith Network, Christian Muslim Forum, and FaithAction. The event was videoed and there were many comments to the effect that those present were going to take the briefing back to their organisations to inform faith, place and planning. Furthermore, there was feedback about the need for follow-on in order to implement the recommendations, where that is possible.
