In 2013, We Dundee brought people together to hear what surprised them about Dundee and what they’d love to see happen in the future. Over the following years, many of those ideas took place as activities, projects and events across the city.
Now in 2020, as the world copes with an unprecedented crisis, it is vital that collaboration and community spirit is at the heart of reconnecting people and rebuilding our vibrant city.
We Dundee returns to ask you, the people of Dundee, to reshape our city’s future for now and for our future generations.
We encourage you to take part to share your views and values, to celebrate the good things, share your radical ideas highlight the less positive, and tell your stories based on your experiences during the Covid-19 crisis.
We restarted the conversation in May 2020 and asked, ‘What has surprised you during these times?’ You can view all submissions here.
We’ve created this short stage 1 Report and open Spreadsheet to share all responses categorised into themes, which include: Outdoor activities – 39%. Culture and community – 28%. Health and Wellbeing – 17%. Local business – 10%. Indoor activities – 6%.
We believe that thinking through the sort of place Dundee wants to be in the future needs all of us to be involved and this is just the beginning. We Dundee will place the voices of people at the heart of Dundee’s recovery. Together we will reflect on our experiences, values and actions in these times and collectively reimagine our future.
Reimagining our future involves us all.
Share your thoughts before 5th October 2020 in answer to the question – Reimagine Dundee. What needs to happen next?
In 2013, We Dundee brought people together to hear what surprised them about Dundee and what they’d love to see happen in the future. Over the years, many of the ideas proposed have been taken forward into activities, projects and events across the city.
We Dundee is a crowd-sourced platform which harnesses the voices of people, amplifying them and making them visible. It reminds us what an astonishing place Dundee is, and what remarkable people live and work here.
We Dundee 2020 has been initiated by Creative Dundee and UNESCO City of Design Dundee, supported by Claire Dow, Clare Brennan and Jennie Patterson. The platform is designed by Agency of None. The city poster campaign is supported by One City Many Discoveries.
