Hastings Emerging Futures Project: Online Community Events
The Heart of Hastings Community Land Trust are very excited to be bringing three new online events to you in January and February! They’re aiming to create a space for town wide, interactive, discussions all held over zoom webinar. To register for a free ticket please follow the links for each event below.
19th January, 7-8.30pm: Hastings Town Centre – Past, Present, Future?
Our ebullient MC John Knowles will host a discussion, with input from the audience, about what Hastings Town Centre means to us, and what we want to see here in the future. We’ll have a presentation about the historical high street from local historian Steve Peak, and a range of guests all with their own perspectives on how we use the town centre as a community, and how we can change things for the better.
26th January, 7-8.30pm: Changing Hastings – One Year On…Gentrification or Housing Crisis; Second home or AirBnB; Social or Private Renter; Landlord or tenant; Owner, renter, squatter or bust?
This meeting is a forum for a town-wide discussion, avoiding the cliched arguments of DFL Vs local but recognising that disparities exist. We’ll be joined by local performers and an array of speakers for three themed panel discussions. Questions, comments and ideas will be invited from our online audience on the night. And we’ll continue hosting the conversation before and after this event on Changing Hastings and Common Treasury of Adaptable Ideas pages on Facebook.
23rd February, 7-8.30pm: Sustainable Hastings
This will be a big conversation: We’ll be inviting local panellists from all the incredibly active organisations we have here in Hastings interested in sustainability, greening and planting, human and environmental wellbeing, alternative transport and energy, fairer economies etc! We will be in touch very soon to invite many of these panellists to take part, but we would love to hear from interested parties in this learning group, as we know how much you would bring to this event.
