Homeworld 40 Event Online and UK New Towns Day, Milton Keynes

Between 4-16 May, Milton Keynes Council (MKC), Living Archive MK and Pooleyville are supporting the delivery of an online programme of talks, screenings, events and activities celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Homeworld ‘81 – a significant and nationally important Housing Expo.

Commissioned by Milton Keynes Development Corporation, Homeworld ’81 firmly established Milton Keynes as a leader in innovative, sustainable housing design. This free online programme will explore innovation then and how it relates to Milton Keynes now, with the new town’s aspirations to become the UK’s first carbon neutral city by 2050.

In addition, Milton Keynes Council (MKC) in partnership with Pooleyville welcomes you to their annual UK New Towns Sharing Day. This year, the UK New Towns Day will take place Online on 13th May 10am – 3pm BST as part of the 40th anniversary of the Homeworld ’81 Event Programme. 

The event gives new towns the opportunity to demonstrate the excellence and/or model value of projects, plans and developments that have been happening in 2020 or which are planned for 2021 within New Towns, and how heritage and culture are driving growth, regeneration, change or ‘new town reinvention’ in the respective places.

MKC are a Group Member of the Academy, and the Academy has a long-standing relationship with the city of Milton Keynes.
