Glass-House Debates: Is Our View of Place Too Short-sighted?
February 11, 2015 @ 18:00 - 20:30 GMT
The Academy is delighted once again to partner with The Glass-House Community Led Design in their annual debate series.
To a More Ambitious Place seeks to question the practice, governance, foresight and culture surrounding placemaking in order to stimulate debate on how we push our aspirations to the next level. The series will bring together a diverse audience and a range of perspectives in placemaking to debate the issues and challenge accepted thinking.
The third in the series of events, will look to address: How much do we consider the long-term consequences of our decisions and actions around place? Can we make quick wins and still achieve long-terms success for people and places? Are sustainability and political and financial attention spans mutually exclusive?
Final speaker to be announced shortly.
Chair: Sophia de Sousa, Chief Executive, The Glass-House Community Led Design
