How can we use people, and local assets to make Wolverhampton a better place?

As manufactoring in the city has gone into decline, the younger generation lack these skills. We have almost lost a generations knowledge of self sustainability, make and mend, manufacturing and community cohesion that was naturally born out of the war years. Before the elders are gone, we need to capture these skills and empower our elders to connect with the younger community members and visa versa.
