A great city commits to sharing success and improving the wellbeing and life experience of all its citizens. In 2050, Edinburgh will be a city without barriers to achievement and where a good quality of life is a basic requirement enjoyed by all.
Rab Bennetts OBE from Bennetts Associate Architects believes quality architecture is vital for the city's precious skyline and what Edinburgh could achieve by 2050 is a greater public understanding of: the city’s strengths; what makes good architecture for Edinburgh; and a sense that both old and new can be harnessed in a fitting way.
Nick Stewart, manager of the Sneaky Pete’s music venue and campaigner for Music Is Audible, thinks that with a better year-round arts scene, Edinburgh 2050 can be a place full of music, arts and culture.
A city that moves?
Chief Executive of Edinburgh Leisure June Peebles would like would like to see Edinburgh being recognised locally and nationally for its physical activity levels – for being a city that moves. She believes that with better funding and facilities everyone in the city can enjoy being active in Edinburgh 2050.
