How can we improve Cardiff?

Our pal Neil Cocker asked Twitter a question about Cardiff yesterday. We want to help him get some answers. So here’s the question. Please leave your answers in the comments!

What one problem solved, small change made, or grand vision for Cardiff would improve the quality of life for its inhabitants? Think big!

There you go! I’m sure you guys can all think of something. Traffic? Education? Potholes? Lost landmarks? Tarting up derelict buildings? Guided tours by volunteers? Better signs? Cycle routes? Guerilla gardening? WHAT!

Please leave your answers in the comments! Or reply directly to Neil on Twitter.

The top three talks voted for by you will be shown and there will be a chance to discuss in between, we’re looking forward to lots of thoughts, ideas and opinions! You can vote until Monday 27 July on the Urbanistas Facebook meeting event

Make a diary marker! Urbanistas meet ups will be on the last Tuesday of every month and we’ll alternate between socials, Expo meet ups (and some alternative events). Expos are where participants come and present an idea or project and ask for help and feedback from everyone.
