Rebooting the 2030 Vision process.

What a seismic shock we’ve had to our lifestyle, community and society as a whole. The question now is how do we want to approach the new normal as we slowly emerge from lockdown? And what do we want it to look like?

Greening Steyning is keener than ever to push on with our plans to make Steyning, Bramber and Upper Beeding one of the greenest and most sustainable communities in the UK.

Having pressed pause the big 2030 visioning event planned for March, and with face-to-face meetings unlikely for some time, we’ve been thinking about how we can reboot the process using online approaches instead. We’ve got some ideas!

On June 10th we’ll be launching an online 2030 Vision Survey to gather everyone’s thinking on what they would like to future to look like by 2030. It should only take 10-15 minutes to fill in and covers transport, energy, housing, shopping, the local economy, and our natural environment. The results from this will give us some shared goals to aim for and set the agenda for subsequent discussion on how we can the change process moving.

You’ll be able to find a link on our brand new website – – which will go live around the same time.

Share your lockdown stories:
We’ve also got plans for how people can share their lockdown stories and hopes for the future via social media using the #steyning2030 hashtag.

Green Drinks is moving online:
We’ll be holding our first online Green Drinks evening via Zoom on Tuesday 30th June, starting at 7.30pm. Paul Hannam and Geoff Barnard will be leading a discussion on how we can reboot the 2030 vision process. Log in details will be on the new website.

Give Your Stuff Away Day on Wheels:
And we’ve got plans for relaunching Give Your Stuff Away Day on Sunday July 5th. Instead of bringing unwanted items to the Catholic Church, the suggestion is to leave them outside our homes. People can then go around with a wheelbarrow or trolley to pick up anything that catches their eye. We can maintain a safe social distance while recycling and reusing a whole load of useful stuff.
