Organisation aims and objectives

We are interested in how decisions of the future are created in past and present opportunities, especially those traditionally without voice. This includes exploring: · Democratic decision making · Young peoples’ imagined futures · Place-making in post-industrial communities’ cities · Carbon outputs and environmental concerns · Expanding environmental awareness by framing environmental problems at a level at which individuals have a personal, lived experience of the natural world – Drawing in wider expertise, schools, and other local groups. Our long-term future hopes are that we find ways of developing sustainable local energy generation in the community.
