The event will transport you to a future Bristol of urban greenery and vibrant nature to playfully explore how this nature utopia was made.

Welcome to Bristol 2040. Once a city of brutalist buildings and polluted streets, Bristol is now a utopia for nature. With streets of vertical gardens, roads replaced by meadows, and rewilded beaver, lynx and stork populations, our city is known across Europe as a paradise of urban greenery and wildlife.

But how did we get here? That’s the question you’ll be answering. The ‘Speculative Salon’ will invite you to step into the shoes of future Bristolians who are telling the story of how they created the green Bristol of 2040. During the session you’ll collaboratively discuss and dream this journey then make monuments documenting it.

This is an event for activists, artists, politicians, and anyone who wants to dream up better futures and pathways to reach them. All ages are welcome, though it is likely to be most engaging for adults and teenagers.
