Visioning Day 15th March 2009

Portobello Community Centre

This was a great oppor­tun­ity to think ima­gin­at­ively abut how we can trans­form Portobello into a vibrant, resi­li­ent place which is cap­able of provid­ing for the needs of its res­id­ents and meet­ing the chal­lenges of the future.

We built on the work PEDAL has already done, and took a no-holds-barred ima­gin­at­ive jour­ney into Portobello’s future, from where we worked back to the steps we need to take now to start mak­ing that vis­ion a real­ity.

We revis­ited what is inspir­ing about the Transition approach, revis­ited the Energy Descent Action Plan (EDAP) we developed in the early years of PEDAL, and saw how the pro­jects we’ve since under­taken – includ­ing the CO2 reduc­tion plan — can be shaped by, and reshape, the plan to enable Portobello to make the trans­ition to a sus­tain­able future.

Sunday 15th March 2pm to 5pm
