This morning I attended the 'Vision for Leeds 2013 - 2030' Steering Group meeting at the Civic Hall...

The group is working with colleagues from the Leeds Initiative to develop a new vision for Leeds. The Leeds Initiative team has been working with partners and groups across the city to answer some fairly basic questions:
  • What do we want Leeds to be like in 2030?
  • What are the big themes and issues we need to address?
  • How do we put people at the heart of this work?
  • How do we cope with the increasing population?
  • How do we involve young people?
  • How do we address sustainability?
  • How do we address health and well-being?

This is a great theme for schools to explore with their children and young people who will be between 25 and 40 years old in 2030. I hope that every school in Leeds will get involved in this important piece of work through their school councils and their curriculum?
