Dundee regeneration conference materials available


The IS and Dundee City Council hosted a regeneration conference in Discovery Point, Dundee on 8 November 2017, as part of the IS Leading Practice conference programme.


Colleagues from Dundee City Council and partner organisations shared their stories about Dundee’s journey to transforming a city, focusing on both economic and community regeneration.


This included Gillian Easson of Creative Dundee leading a series of ‘lightening talks’ with lots of short, snappy presentations on aspects of regeneration in Dundee including:


  • Building the city’s economic potential
  • Engaging communities through design
  • Making big collaborations through Place Partnership and UNESCO City of Design
  • Growing our city through community gardening
  • Using design to transform services
  • Re:GenerationZ


Delegates also had the opportunity to participate in city safaris, to visit a couple of projects which illustrate Dundee’s approach to regeneration, including walking and virtual tours of the Dundee Waterfront and bus trips out to two of Dundee’s award winning community ‘one-stop-shops’ – The Crescent and Lochee Community Hubs.


Videos of the presentations and slides are available below. You can also download the programme.
