We are continually faced with great opportunities which are brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.

(Margaret Mead)

There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.

(Meg Wheatley)

Our neighbourhood learning ground is an action based inquiry.

Our communities and neighbourhoods today face great challenges – social, economic and environmental. They are also vibrant and diverse with rich resources of wisdom, creativity, passion, experience and resilience.

We will be exploring place based approaches to nurturing, honouring and working with these resources – and how to build a community of practice with others on a similar journey.

We are starting small and will follow the energy to see where it leads.


Connected, resilient, resourceful, caring and equitable neighbourhoods where all can flourish.


To create a platform that helps explore, connect, share, nurture and learn from new ways of working with communities across Nottingham.
