CityForum Brighton & Hove launch

One of our current projects is a project called CityForum Brighton & Hove, a trial run for a series of citywide participation events, sponsored by the University of Brighton.

We held a launch event in the midst of a torrential downpour last week, and Demsoc governor Catherine Howe has written it up for the Demsoc Brighton & Hove site:

For me the meeting also helped to clarify what Cityforum is going to be – and also what people want from it.  It think its best described as an opportunity for people with ideas to get them in front of the right people and get some commitments about how to make them happen.  We’re not talking about money or resources (though hopefully at some point there will be some of those) its more about getting the right group of people talking so that things get done.  We hope that we get some actual commitments to take ideas forward from the event and this is why its important to develop ideas as much as we can in advance so that we can use our time in front of decision makers well.
