Sharing Good Practice - Public Speaking

As a key advocate for heritage conservation and heritage-led neighbourhood development, The Baring Trust is always keen to share its work and disseminate learning on topics important to the Trust's mission. Through its central role in galvanising and bringing communities together to recognise and appreciate their neighbourhood’s heritage assets, the Trust has built a strong portfolio of collaborative design approaches and tactics that can empower communities to co-create a neighbourhood vision that delivers wider social, environmental and economic value.


Guest Lectures

In recognition of these achievements, the Trust is regularly asked to share its experience through guest lectures and workshops at universities and international conferences. It has worked with The Building Crafts College, Kingston University School of Architecture and Landscape, The Bartlett School of Planning and the Development Planning Unit, to name a few.


International Conferences

The Baring Trust was invited to participate in the 9th International Urbanize conference in Vienna, October 2018. The talk and panel discussion focused on good practices in delivering a heritage-driven Neighbourhood Development Plan, while the workshop to participating students focused on ‘Strategies for Reclaiming Neighbourhood Assets’.


Planning Hearings

The Trust has additionally been central to giving evidence at planning inspectorate hearings and local authority panels.


Teaching & Workshops

Working with The Bartlett, Development Planning Unit (DPU) at University College London, The Trust was involved in co-creating the 2017 summer school programme – Heritage in Transformation which used Deptford as a case study. The Trust also took part in co-delivering the 2018 DPU SummerLab programme in collaboration with Mapping Futures entitled Constructing Healthier Urbanisms, using their work in Grove Park as the case study.
