Event description

Description

Jo Harrop talks about setting up her award-winning social enterprise PLACED. Jo founded PLACED because of her desire to develop young people’s understanding of the towns and cities in which they live and how the quality of design impacts on the lives of all residents.

Jo is passionate about giving young people the opportunity to have an active role in the changes taking place in their communities, and believes giving them the confidence and self-belief to voice their opinions will support them in making the most of their talents. She believes that through bringing local people and the decision makers together to share a conversation and explore ideas we can create better places

PLACED is Liverpool-based and now works across the northwest of England. It is supported by volunteer PLACED Ambassadors, a collaboration of built environment professionals including architects, urban designers, interior designers, engineers, planners and university students.



Start-up Day is supported by the Google Digital Garage
