Start Up Street - What will you start up?
Another interesting example of how government agencies are involving local communities in the development of their urban areas.
According to Architecture+Design Scotland the Start Up Street initiative’s goal is to “explore how people with ideas, talents and capabilities in the city can be matched with the available spaces in the city, supported by a community of interest. This idea is being tested in a prototype phase to engage a wide range of interests in exploring how the idea works, what is feasible, what is not. The objective is to use this practical method of testing the idea to develop a live project, to start small and build up a sustainable, self supporting enterprise”
