The Next Fifty Years: Visions for the Future of Leeds
How could global, national, regional and local trends infulence the way Leeds develops?
The Trust started with an urgent agenda of saving some of the historic structures of the city. That is still an importnat element of our work. However we see the historic elements of the city as an integrated part of endless urban evolution. The Trust is listened to. We could have even more influence if we had a stronger sense of the sort of city that we would like to bequeath to posterity. This presentation, given on 21 May at aql, Salem Chapel, sets out some ideas about how we can consider the long-term future of the city and the Trust's role. It introduces some of the techniques of 'futures thinking'.
