Social Life understands that building thriving places depends on much more than bricks and mortar.
Too many developments, towns and cities fail because the reality of what people and communities want and need has been neglected in their creation.
Our mission is to reconnect placemaking with people’s everyday experience and the way that communities work.
We work internationally with communities, built environment professionals, public agencies and governments, putting people and social need at the heart of the way cities, towns and new developments are planned, developed and managed.
Our expertise is in the social dimensions of placemaking and sustainability, in understanding how to accelerate local social innovation and in knowing how to translate these insights into practice and policy.
Social Life is a social enterprise and was created by the Young Foundation.
