B&NES Council has invited residents to join in the process of developing #OneSharedVision on how Bath and North East Somerset could recover from the Covid pandemic and address the wide-ranging impacts experienced across the community.
The vision would also ensure that recovery and rebuilding helps achieve a stronger, more resilient, fairer, greener, and by 2030, net zero place.
A series of ‘stories’ have been developed about how people could work together to achieve a stronger, low carbon and more inclusive economy. They are set out in a series of challenges.
They describe a future where the workforce could be reskilled through digital technology and innovation and where living and working could become more localised, reducing the need to travel and allowing nature to thrive.
The stories have been developed through collaboration with local businesses, the public sector, the university and education sector as well as community, third sector organisations and other stakeholders, on behalf of the new Economic Recovery and Renewal Board (ERRB), chaired by the Leader of B&NES Council.
The council has committed to providing the leadership to enable Bath and North East Somerset to achieve Net Zero Carbon by 2030. The stories explore what this change may look like and consider how new models of finance and investment might give local people and businesses a greater stake in creating the infrastructure that will be needed to reduce both carbon emissions and social divides.
Residents are encouraged to participate in the development of #OneSharedVision online from December 9th to December 18th at https://beta.bathnes.gov.uk/help-us-create-one-shared-vision
