We have been driven by the ambition of our communities. In September we held We Make Camden, our first week of action to bring together and galvanise the community energy we know exists around making Camden a better, fairer, more just and more sustainable place. We will continue to build on this energy – recognising that this isn’t about the Council delivering, but also where our role is to facilitate, step aside and convene.
Now we need to:
- Identify those key projects that will help us make the best use of our resources and levers as an organisation to make progress towards the missions
- Measure and track the impact of early work, in order that it informs the work as it progresses
- Scale up the work we’ve done to enable resident leadership and activism in this first phase of the work, so it can continue to shape and influence the later work
- Deepen the new relationships we’ve been building with partners – and create new ones
We are so excited to see this work continue to develop and grow, including outlining the concrete actions the Council will be taking to support the missions over the coming years. We can’t wait to do this with our Commissioners, with the new partnerships we have developed through this process, and most importantly with our citizens and communities.
