Fifty ways to improve your city?

Blog

I was flattered to be asked to give a speech at Southampton Solent University this morning, at their Vision for 2020 Conference.  Southampton is close to my heart as I was at university there so I was delighted to accept.

In a slight departure from the norm (for me), I’ve done a full text, which has gone to local RSA Fellows and the local press. The core idea is that the institutions, businesses and communities of Southampton make fifty commitments to improve the city to coincide next year with its fiftieth birthday as a chartered city.

If you ‘re interested, you can read it here: Speech to Southampton Solent University October 2013.  It would be fantastic to have thoughts from Southampton Fellows (thanks to those who have sent me emails - I've had some really helpful comments).

After the speech the audience will be discussing the idea so I’ll add some reflections later.
