Reception Room, Wills Memorial Building, University of Bristol

During 2015, the University of Bristol's Cabot Institute, the Festival of Ideas and the Bristol Green Capital Partnership with partners in government, civil society and industry have discussed and collected citizen opinions on how to achieve a thriving, equitable and sustainable future for Bristol.

Issues explored include environmental uncertainty, resilience, youth, devolution, austerity, partnership, governance and economics. This session looks at the findings of this work and debates how Bristol can take charge of its own successful, sustainable future.

Among the contributors are: Prof Rich Pancost, (Director of the Cabot Institute); Gary Topp, (Development Director of the Bristol Green Capital Partnership); Caroline Bird (Cabot Institute Future Cities Knowledge Exchange Manager); Sarah Toy (Resilience Manager, Bristol); Alex Minshull (Bristol City Council); Paul Hassan (Voscur), Liz Zeidler (Happy City / BGCP), Prof Andy Gouldson (Universities of Bristol and Leeds) and Prof Ruth Levitas (author of 'Utopia as Method').
