Brighton & Hove has set a target of becoming carbon neutral by 2030, with its Carbon Neutral 2030 Programme identifying actions to improve travel and transport, energy and water, waste, and the built and natural environments.

Design South East delivered an online creative workshop for over 100 residents, businesses, visitors and experts to imagine what a life in a carbon neutral Brighton & Hove would look like and how it would feel as a place to live, work and visit. An afternoon session then focused on tangible actions and priorities.

Four themes were chosen to drive the discussion – Built environment, Nature and Environment, Energy and Heat, Transport and Movement – informed by a keynote speech and four themed presentations.

“It was thought provoking, inspiring and practical; and I really look forward to building on the outputs next year.”
