‘What does it mean for a city to grow?’

June 4 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Professional and public discourses on what it means for a city like Cambridge to grow don’t always match. The term ‘growth’ carries varying meanings – for some it’s largely positive and growth brings opportunities for homes, wealth and solutions to existing problems. But for others, it can be threatening, much loved places change their character, environments can be damaged and opportunities created are not shared by everyone. Despite the growth of Cambridge being seen as of regional and national significance, the rise and hegemony of the pro-growth sentiment in Cambridge has rarely been critically examined. This public event aims to open up dialogues about 1) what it means for Cambridge to grow, and 2) how different perceptions could enable new visions of city development, drive behavioural changes and address major challenges through novel policymaking processes. More details of speakers and how are here. Open to all – and please complete the survey first. More details here.
