The second wide-ranging workshop to further develop the vision was held at the University
of Reading on 1 December 2015, involving many of the people who have contributed to the project along the way.
The focused and interactive day which focused on three developing and interconnected scenarios for the town, Green Technology, Parks and Rivers and Festivals and Culture, included short inspirational presentations and a design session, encouraging participants to focus on what Reading has excelled at and what could be improved.
Drawing upon the morning’s workshops the 44 strong group looked ahead to 2050, bringing ideas to life with a variety of creative mediums including maps and plasticine.
The group focused on transforming today's challenges for Reading into scenarios and 3D spatial proposals for a better future for Reading by 2050.
The first draft of the vision will be released in March, but from now until then, the group are calling for more local businesses and individuals to get involved.
