Exploring Scotland’s 20-minute neighbourhoods: Designing in the community

August 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The 20-minute concept has gained attention internationally and has been developed in cities such as Melbourne, Portland and Paris. The concept looks at having all your basic needs – health and social care, shops, work hubs, places to socialise –  met within a 20-minute walk, wheel or cycle from where you live.

The Scottish Government’s 2020-21 Programme for Government  announced the ambition of 20- minute neighbourhoods and the concept has gained significant traction since the COVID-19 pandemic with people staying closer to home to access support and services.

The  Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland is holding four events, each with a panel of speakers and breakout rooms.
