Creating a Vision for Brighton & Hove

Brighton and Hove Connected and city stakeholders are running 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 want to explore the areas that we think will affect the way in which we live over the next 20 years or so….

Disruptive technology is changing us and the world around us. We are already a disrupted city

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 this will help them to make the best decisions possible to ensure that our residents and visitors alike are able to take full advantage of our vibrant and exciting city.

Digital learning, autonomous vehicles, wearable tech and vertical green spaces

We will look at areas such as future housing, future work, future travel and learning; our changing population and the role that technology will play in shaping our city.

Understanding who this is primarily for, but also how we will all be affected by change will be key considerations across all events

We are not starting with a blank sheet of paper and we will draw on evidence from our recent consultations on areas such as the economy, our cultural and visitor offer as well as our plans for children and young people, our ageing population and the way in which we organise health, care and community safety services.

Strategies & plans already here and coming in 2018

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

A creative atmosphere at events will be key

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.

We hope that you will come along for the ride……
