|How Would You Improve Central Ealing?|
Competition for 16-25 year olds
A new competition has been launched for young people between the ages of 16-25 to produce ideas for the best way to develop Ealing town centre.
Anyone who works or studies in central Ealing is invited to get involved in shaping the Neighbourhood Plan, by taking part in a day-long exercise.
Teams of five will be able to use a variety of methods to show how new ideas could be put into effect to make it a better place for the future.
All the ideas will be put on display at the end of the competition on Sunday12 October at the Down Under Centre, 48 Haven Green, and will be voted on by the public over the following week. The winning teams will each receive a prize. 1st winning team £500, runner up £300 and 3rd team £200.
This innovative approach has been developed for the Forum by Angela Koch of ImaginePlaces, who has worked on similar projects with the Princes Foundation and other community groups.
“We are confident that we will be able to entice between 30 and 40 young people to share their ideas and thoughts on the future of Central Ealing,” said Angela. “We hope that there would be about 100 people joining us for the public exhibition, which will contribute significantly to engaging a wider group in helping to develop a sustainable local plan.”
Details of how to apply to join are on the CENF web site at www.centralealingforum.com.
