How to participate

Better Bankside is powered by the people of Bankside.

We’re an organisation of innovators and do-ers, continually seeking new ways to involve the Bankside community in the co-creation and ideation of our programme. Our success relies on your participation.

Thanks to a constant dialogue with our membership, our programme continues to evolve in response to the needs of Banksiders. Looking ahead to 2025, we have developed strategies to drive economic growth, energise our community into climate action and shape a happy neighbourhood.
