“Capacity Global was the obvious ‘go to’ partner in London for developing an environment and place-shaping idea. Together we planned and set up LARCS the environmental justice and place-shaping clinic run for communities, creating advice-giving and internship opportunities for Faculty of Laws’ postgraduates at UCL. Maria Adebowale, Living Space Project’s director provides practical and stimulating seminars for students on the realities of pursuing social and environmental justice and LARCS continues to be popular with the students and the communities we offer advice to”.
