What do you think Milton Keynes should look like in 2030?

Organisers of the Imagine MK 2030 competition are asking for people who live in Milton Keynes to put their ideas on a single A4 paper or digital page.

You don't need to be artistic - just think of the changes you would like to take place. Every MK resident is welcome to enter before April 12. An exhibition of the best and prize-winning entries will be held in May and June.

For more information, and to enter the competition: exhibition will be followed by a range of sustainability-led events and activities take place across MK in partnership with Milton Keynes Council sustainability team’s INTENSIFY project and others.

If you have ideas about how we could be living more sustainably in Milton Keynes in future, enter the Imagine MK 2030 competition that Transition Town MK is running with the support of MK Council’s sustainability team.

TTMK Chair, Michael Sheppard, said: "We all spend most of our time thinking about and dealing with life as it is here and now in the present. Sometimes we may get reflective and compare how things are now with how they were a few years ago. But rarely do we spend time thinking about the future and how things could be different and better than they are now. I believe we need to do more of this.

"All over Britain and in many other parts of the world, Transition Town groups have started successful local projects after taking the important first step of future thinking. My hope is that many people of all ages will choose to participate in our Imagine MK campaign.

"Milton Keynes needs your ideas - the more the better! And if our campaign succeeds we can influence the decisions of political and business leaders, as well as supporting and encouraging people all over MK to take steps towards more sustainable living.

"A more sustainable lifestyle is possible .... We just need to imagine it first!”
