Building on the success of last December’s talks that accompanied the Future City exhibition, MK Gallery collaborates with The Fred Roche Foundation to host several talks to stimulate creative discussion and debate around subjects that are vital to the growth and vitality of Milton Keynes. The ‘Future City’ series of talks will look at a variety of future city issues and emerging social, infrastructure and economic trends.
A Low Carbon City: the fourth in the ‘Future City’ series of free talks will focus on ensuring a well-designed built and natural environment that will work in the future, and an environment that encapsulates sustainable landscapes and townscapes, and a productive green resource.
