In an historically marginalised part of Stoke-on-Trent, the residents have embarked on a 100 Year Plan to improve the neighbourhood for the community and the planet.
Grown out of Covid, when it was difficult to even think about the next week, they found planning for the next 100 years lifted the discussion out of crisis management. It enabled the community to reflect on their place in history, empowering them to move forwards; to embark on a series of short-term projects to defend their land and the wider ecology. Through each small action collectively made today, huge impacts can follow.
