Discovering Places Final Report!

The Alliance’s ‘Discovering Places’ project – the unique heritage strand of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad – has now come to an end. Over 18 intense months, the team worked with over 400 partners to deliver nearly 200 separate events, created four popular web resources and encouraged over 200,000 people to engage with their local environment in a new and exciting way.

Highlights included the ‘Walk the World‘ project in conjunction with the Royal Geographical Institute (with IBG) and ‘Meet the Species‘ with the Bristol Natural History Consortium.

The project was an excellent example of cooperation with local organisations from Box Hill to Ben Nevis, as well as with larger organisations. Thanks go to English Heritage and the London 2012 Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) for their support and to Ian Lush and Claire Horan for their hard work and dedication.
