Is Our View of Place Too Short-sighted? @ The Pavilion // Weds 11th Feb (18:00-19:30) // Cost: Free


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?

The issues will be discussed by panellists, including Barra Mac Ruairí, (Strategic Director of Place, Bristol City Council), Melissa Mean, (Redcliffe Neighbourhood Development Forum), and Steve Maslin, (Director, Building User Design).
