Culture and Community - Public Submissions

Respecting and reviving local identity, wisdom and culture; encouraging the involvement of people in shaping their community and creating a new culture of sustainability.

Brighton and Hove has an international reputation for arts and culture. Its historic monuments, festivals, indoor and outdoor events have forged the city into one of Britain’s premier tourist destinations. Integral to this cultural activity is community participation where individuals come together from an inordinate range of social, cultural and geographical backgrounds.

The One Planet vision is one where a culture of sustainability and community has been nurtured. Local identity is respected and revived, people are encouraged to involve themselves in shaping their community, ultimately, to create a new culture of sustainability that embeds itself in others.
