Shops with a History.

Lisbon City Council created the programme Lojas com História in 2015. A sense of urgency drove the city to preserve and boost a distinctive local commerce and trade heritage, knowing that in it lies a relevant part of the identity and character of Lisbon.

The Leeds cultural curriculum.

In Leeds, consultation with teachers, universities and teacher trainers showed teachers wanted flexible, curriculum-linked classroom resources. Driven by the narrative of the city, these new resources are called ‘stories’ and aim to raise the educational achievement of children through heritage and the arts.

Pocket parks.

Krakow suffers from a lack of easily accessible green spaces. To solve this issue, Krakow is building pocket parks built in cooperation with local people in formerly neglected outdoor public spaces.
