Abstract
This paper introduces two interrelated Open Space articles, Changing the narrative: Measuring progress by measuring what matters to families and Places of prosumption: Community gardens putting the 'we' into neighbourhoods. These articles explore how space can be created that facilitates relationships that do not rely on social and environmentally damaging consumption, and help create space for socially, environmentally and economically sustainable societies.
