Cardiff University’s pioneering Community Gateway project is working to build a long-term partnership with residents of Grangetown in Cardiff to create an even better place to live and work. The programme facilitates co-produced projects which respond to local needs and mutually benefit the community and University through the development of research, teaching and volunteering opportunities.
The Phoenix Project is 4 years into a 9 year partnership with the University of Namibia (UNAM). Led by Prof Judith Hall, the vision is Poverty Reduction and Health promotion and we work with the Welsh Government’s Wales for Africa programme to achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. UPSI are working with the project to improve understanding of Road Traffic Accidents in Namibia, by creating an improved dataset for research and operational analysis.
The term productive margins embodies an understanding that people and communities excluded from participation in the regulatory regimes that impact upon their daily lives have expertise, experience and creativity that can be politically productive.The programme seeks to release these capacities, using this energy to co-produce new ways of envisioning and engaging regulation.
