Chelmsford Ideas Festival / Climate Change: Local Responses To A Global Challenge (World Planning Day Event)
November 8, 2016 @ 12:00 - 14:00 GMT
The Chelmsford Ideas Festival has several events under the umbrella of ‘Your City’ supported by The Academy of Urbanism.
This special day is celebrated in 30 countries on 4 continents. It recognises the planning role in creating livable communities, and how it impacts many aspects of our daily life. An excellent look at planning from both local – and global perspectives. Our sustainability challenges in Chelmsford are also shared by cities in the UK and in other countries. What lessons can we learn from them – and they from us? Through online Webinars and Local, face-to-face workshops, various practical actions for Engaging, Collaborative, Innovative and Creative solutions to city issues are explored, e.g. Local Food, Transition Towns (Sustainable Energy and Housing for all, including Gypsies/travellers) and Neighbourhood Planning. Including a talk by Prof Tony Hall on the Robust City.
