Event description

Description

What's this event about?

Technological innovations are developing at a speed it is hard for almost anyone to keep up with but for our children and young people they have not known a different world. As our young population grows and we have the opportunity to lift our heads up and look to the 2030 horizon, we can begin to consider what their lives in Brighton & Hove will be like in the future. Understanding the way they are using and will use technology to socialise, play, learn and travel will help inform the decisions we make about their wellbeing and what they need to thrive in Brighton & Hove.

If we can envisage a healthy and fulfilling future for our children and young people, including those most marginalised or vulnerable and enable them to share in every aspect of life in Brighton & Hove we will have set ourselves on a journey to creating a city for all.

For more information on how we are planning for the future and for resources that will help inform your thinking before the event please see our Spark Page.

Once you have watched and read the resources please share your thoughts on possible futures before the event through our short Survey Monkey questionnaire.


Who is it for?

This event is for all those with an interest in the future of the city for children & young people. We would especially welcome attendees who work with children and young people and who have not previously had the opportunity to share their expertise in a citywide consultation.

More about the Vision:

The 2030 Vision


Brighton & Hove Connected and city stakeholders are runing a series of events to help the city examine how we can prepare for the future.

We are all increasingly aware of rapid changes that influence the way we work, learn and travel; changes to the way we live, our housing, our health and our entertainment.

These changes can affect our environment, our economy and our satisfaction and we are exploring the areas that we think will affect the way in which we live over the next 15 years or so...

This is not intended to be a traditional consultation process where organisations present proposals on which to comment. This will be a series of discussions led by a range of people from across the city, which allows us to look at the issues and decisions that we need to face in the future and provide insight and opinion to help those who have to take those decisions over the next few years.

We hope that events will be creative, engaging, informing and will help shape future ideas for Brighton & Hove, building on our reputation as a city of ideas that is bold, creative and, so often, one step ahead.

We are not seeking solutions or definite ideas to be enacted, but a conversation to explore what possible futures might look like and to give ourselves the best chance of a bright and exciting future.
