Collaboration is the only way to build true resilience into our towns and cities. For the past few years we have spoken about People, Planet and Profit. We have spoken about the UN Sustainable Development Goals, but the time has come to put words into action. We need to stop talking about millennials and we need to involve them and give them a voice.
At last I have been able to work with Resilience Brokers and their partners. We need a town which is brave enough to say we need change. Let's develop education that can empower and allow emergence of talents which are not seen in the current academic model. We cannot change the current school system, but can we plant a new vision? Can a town like Swanley support a visionary model which allows creative talents to shine?
