Webinar - 'Maximising Social Value in Design' guidance document launch

On Wednesday 24 November we’ll be hosting a webinar to launch the ‘Maximising Social Value in Design’ guidance document. This guidance shares the Social Value in Design Taskforce’s findings of how social value can be integrated into the design process and what design decisions allow for end-users and wider community members outside a design team to continue creating a legacy of social value. The Social Value in Design Taskforce hopes to support other design teams and professionals to empower the communities that use the spaces they design to create social value.

Who are the Social Value in Design Taskforce?

The Taskforce was brought together earlier this year to understand the challenges practitioners face integrating social value into their decision-making and how they can also maximise social value through their project teams.

The Social Value in Design Taskforce comprises over 40 design professionals from 23 organisations across the built environment sector, including architects, urban designers, transport planners, design engineering consultants and researchers who collaborated on this guidance document.

Panellists for this session:

Guy Battle – CEO, Social Value Portal

Natalie Tyaba – Local Needs Researcher, Social Value Portal

Karyn Williams – Senior Associate Technologist, Stride Treglown Architecture

Philip Watson – Director (Head of Design), HLM Architects

Clare Bond – Architect and Diversity Champion, Sarah Wigglesworth Architects

EDIT: This session is now available to watch on-demand

Date: Wednesday, November 24, 2021

Time: 10.00 – 11.00 (GMT)
