GamesMaster day and CLES summit
On 12-14 July 10 GamesMasters from across Europe participated in the Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES) annual summit in Manchester, UK to share their knowledge and experience from Future City Games around the themes of creativity and resilience.
On 12 July, we had a day of discussions between GamesMasters before the actual CLES summit. Neil McInroy from CLES presented his views on resilient places and why resilience is so important during an economic downturn. After this, we discussed what enhances and what limits creativity in cities. Finally, the GamesMasters each produced a slide on a Future City Game theme which they felt was important.
For the whole day we were joined by UK practitioners, Martin Stockley from Martin Stockley Associates, Jon Rea from Nottingham City Council, Ken Barnsley from Blackburn with Darwen, Diarmaid Lawlor from Architecture + Design Scotland and Ben Williams from Groundwork Northwest.
During the CLES summit, the GamesMasters participated in the workshops and also gave their presentation to the summit participants.
