15min City

Community Conversation: 15min City
This is our second Festival Legacy Project and will take the form of our semi-regular live-streamed Community Conservations.

From London Living Streets:
'There has been a huge amount written about the 15-minute city with the emphasis on glamorous city centres in global cities. The reality though is that the 15-minute city is perhaps less likely to find its fullest expression in those city centres where relatively few people live than in local urban high streets and town centres.

When we add the impact of the pandemic, with more people working from home and making use of local shops and services, these local centres have even greater potential to become the heroes of sustainable living.'

Join this conversation and share your thoughts with our invited guests as we discuss if the 15min City concept might be a good fit for West Norwood. 

This event will be live-streamed to Facebook here: www.facebook.com/TheNorwoodForum/
