The Great Debate – How can we ensure our city centres thrive, Bristol

About this event

ICE would like to invite you to the Great Debate, which this year will focus upon our city centres and what risks and opportunities lie ahead.

City and town centres are under increasing pressure from challenges to the traditional retail model and uncertainty caused by global and national political change. New homes are required in increasing numbers, especially in our towns and cities. Better transport infrastructure is needed to reduce carbon emissions, congestion and reduce stress. Placemaking, more diverse urban living, and technology need to be embraced to support thriving cities of the future.

Hosted by Elena Marco, Head of Department Architecture and the Built Environment at UWE Bristol, our Great Debate on 4 July 2019 brings together built environment professionals and future professionals to hear, discuss and question our panel of experts; and to provide intelligent thinking for the agencies and authorities tasked with leading our cities sustainability and growth.

Panellists include: Richard Bonner (Arcadis); Patricia Brown (Central); Professor Glenn Lyons (UWE Bristol).

Hosted by UWE Bristol at Arnolfini.

Partners: RIBA, RTPI, RICS, ICE, CIBSE, IStructE
