The Happy City

screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-18-11-56Cambridge and its villages are changing fast. Cambridge has been dubbed ‘the most unequal city in Britain’. So what makes for a happy city? Do we need a different vision for change?

FeCRA’s (Federation of Cambridge Residents Associations) AGM Event, ‘The Happy City’, Wednesday 22 March, will tackle this subject matter with a great panel including  Kim Wilkie, widely regarded as the UK’s leading landscape architect & urban designer.  Kim Wilkie’s works include: developing a landscape strategy for the Thames in London, a strategy that was all about genuine public engagement; the V & A Gardens; the Natural History Museum’s civic realm; the designs for Irfan, a new ‘smart city’ in Oman and the pedestrianisation of Oxford’s Broad St.

At last year’s event with Dame Fiona Reynolds on ‘The Fight for Beauty’ there was a good attendance & lively Q & A discussion.

Details of the programme are on the Eventbrite listing.  http://bit.ly/2k5NsH6  Please register in advance.
