We will address 10 topics during 2011 and 2012; for a list see the left-hand column.

For each topic we will organise two workshops:

First workshop

This is intended to be a workshop for two dozen invited experts, not just those whose expertise is concentrated on the topic under discussion, but including also those who can see the wider picture.

Three of four short introductory talks set the scene, and then the participants divide into two groups, each led by a facilitator, to debate answers to two or three questions of which they have been warned before the workshop.

Second workshop

This brings together a wider group of participants, including those from residents associations, councillors and local-government officers, and business people.

Following brief introductory talks, the participants divide into groups of about 10, each led by a facilitiataor, to debate answers ito questions posed by the organisers.

Between the two workshops, the topic is debated also by the Cambridge group of the RSA, the Royal Society for the encouragment of the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.


Each workshop has a one-page output of its main conclusions. This is put onto the web site, togther with speakers' slides and other material.
