This time the Grassroots Channel brings you the story of how a threat was used to transform a neighbourhood.

Emma Woolf talks about the campaign to protect Cotteridge Park in Birmingham, how school children got involved and how it blossomed into so much more than a three week spat with local politicians. Produced by Podnosh and supported by the Birmingham Community Empowerment Network.
