What will Cambridge be like in 2050?
Imagine you, or someone like you, in Cambridge in the year 2050 being asked about your life by a time traveller from today. What will you be doing, wearing, eating? Which things will be cheaper than now and which will be more expensive? How will renewable energy be generated and managed? With much less energy from fossil fuels our priorities will be different. What will you say about your likes and dislikes? What will be your hopes and dreams?

We will be thinking about questions like these at our Cambridge 2050 Story Workshops, which will help you develop ideas for the story competition. In each 2-hour session we will go on an imaginary journey through the city streets, looking at buildings and people, what they look like and what they are doing and thinking about.

Please send us an email if you would like to come or would like to book a place.
