Ideas to inspire you

This book contains more than 100 ideas that are designed to inspire and provoke thought about what is possible in Essex.

The ideas in this book were developed by dozens of different partners in creative sessions conducted between May and June 2017.

Participants working across a broad range of Essex organisations generated ideas around seven key ambitions for Essex. They’re not official policy but instead a way to kick-start countywide creativity.

Don’t think of this book as a ‘how to’ guide. It’s a ‘what if’ to inspire, inform and provoke.

The ideas we came up with are sometimes practical and at other times wild, frequently challenging, and always looking to lift the County up to its greatest potential. 

If you see an idea in here that you think we should do, why not start a discussion with someone and make it happen!
