How much do we consider the long-term consequences of our decisions and actions around place? Can we make quick wins and still achieve long-term success for people and places? Are sustainability and political and financial attention spans mutually exclusive?
'Is our view of place too short-sighted?' took place on 11 February 2015 at the Pavilion, Bristol Harbourside. The debate was supported by Architecture Centre Bristol, Walking Interconnections, Bristol Festival of Ideas & Bristol Green Capital 2015 and chaired by Sophia de Sousa, Chief Executive of The Glass-House.
