The idea of an intergenerational quiz is to develop community links between partners, harness the skills of all the participants and give them something meaningful to be a part of.
The Place Standard tool provides a simple framework to structure conversations about place. It allows you to think about the physical elements of a place (e.g. its buildings, spaces, and transport links) as well as the social aspects (e.g. whether people feel they have a say in decision making). The tool provides prompts for discussions, allowing you to consider all the elements of place in a methodical way. The tool pinpoints the assets of a place as well as areas where a place could improve.
The resources pages contain a mixture of useful downloads, publications such as fact sheets and toolkits, which may be able to support you or help you better understand community led design. There is a huge amount to consider when taking part in any built environment project and without the relevant information this can be a daunting task. The Glass-House can help at any stage.
