  • Future City - Chelmsford festival logo (Chelmsford City Council)
    Article: Oct 20, 2020

    "A month of ideas on growing a sustainable Chelmsford" is how October is being labelled by Chelmsford City Council.

    The council has brought together organisations from across Chelmsford to create 'Future City: a month of ideas on growing a sustainable Chelmsford'. The mainly digital festival runs throughout October and tackles the themes of climate change, biodiversity and sustainability. The programme is intended to capture the moment as we think about life post-COVID-19, and it's hoped events and activities will encourage people in the city to make connections and provide fresh thinking about the future.
