The Sustainable Citizenship project is one strand of the RSA’s Citizen Power
programme in Peterborough; a strategic partnership between Peterborough
City Council, the Arts Council and the RSA to explore and revive notions of
place and identity at a local level and investigate ways of strengthening civic
society in Peterborough. The Sustainable Citizenship project contributes towards
Peterborough’s existing environmental activity by cultivating a broader civic
commitment to environmental activism that spreads throughout the city.
Through a number of activities and interventions, the project will encourage, test
and support local people’s ideas that make “green” behaviour easier. Community
led innovation is therefore at the centre of the Sustainable Citizenship project.
