Jam and Justice

Co-producing urban governance for social innovation.

Cities are sites of crisis and opportunity. In a context of rapid social change and austerity, the effectiveness of traditional systems of urban governance is in doubt. Jam and Justice: Co-Producing Urban Governance for Social Innovation aims to create a unique space for social innovation to co-produce, test and learn from new ways of governing cities.

'Jam' is about trying to bring together different partners in the city to experiment and innovate to address shared problems. 'Justice' is about re-connecting with those who have been disenfranchised and excluded from the search for solutions.
