The original project aims were to collect and collate stories directly from individuals in the city, sharing strategically and identifying key decisions coming up.
We aim to work in a way that fosters and supports new relationships because we know that authentic relationships between the people involved in Belong in Plymouth will support cross-sector collaboration to emerge. Belong in Plymouth provides space and support for people to explore challenges, search for answers and take action together.
We are trying to create spaces where people feel happy to contribute different ideas and viewpoints. A space where people can try float ideas, ask questions, explore the potential of new relationships and feel safe in the knowledge that they are in a supported, safe-to-fail environment.
To do this Belong is Plymouth supports people engaging with it by:
- Facilitating training to release others to listen well, ask considered questions to open-up the complexity of the issue and map the themes and stories that come back.
- Looking at what Leadership means in our complex world – how do we drive action without knowing the answers?
- Building and supporting Networks of concerned people and organisations across Plymouth who want to do things differently.
- Supporting and learning from the amazing Action happening across Plymouth by looking at how we connect the small actions to the big picture and supporting existing action through capacity building support.
