Today, we are in Coventry for Restitch: The Social Fabric Summit. In collaboration with Create Streets and Labour Together, we’ve organised 12 events with over 40 speakers to reimagine our communities, reweave our places, and restitch the social bonds between people.

We’re joined by Security Minister Tom Tugendhat, Shadow Environment Secretary Steve Reed, South Yorkshire Mayor Oliver Coppard, Camden Council Leader Georgia Gould, Times’ Columnist Lord Finkelstein, urban planner Carlos Moreno, RSPB CEO Beccy Speight, Civic Future CEO Munira Mirza, and many more.
