Welcome to the Future Search Blog for Bolton, UK. We are a team of students from a school in the town who attended the 3 day event on September 2005 (21st-23rd). Our role was to report and comment on the vision for Bolton as the people present, including us, shared views and opinions. You need to be heard too so this blog is yours to speak through. Our work goes on right up to this moment...

Making yourself heard is suddenly very easy...
The Future Search event in Bolton this year (2005) will give all sorts of people the chance to be heard and give a steer the future direction of the way things happen in our town.

Shortly there will be a team of 4 young people from one of Bolton's high schools who'll be representing the voice of all learners in Bolton.
Their job will be to make sure that you are

  • able to publish what your reactions and thoughts are right here for Bolton and the World to see

The team will aim to publish live to this blog from the Future search event...more to follow.

I was at the confernce today and have been part of the planning group. I was very excited about the way the first day went - there was a good attendance and everyone particiapted in mixed groups- parents, council, health, children, voluntary groups - all with an interest in making Bolton a better place for children in Bolton in the future. Today we have been concentrating on the past - our own personal past - events which have shaped our lives, as well as events in the history of Bolton over the past 30 years, and global events during the same period. There was a lot of energy in the room! We are looking forward to another good day tomorrow and hope everyone returns with more vigour to look at the present, tomorrow!

The children introduced the reasons behind the conference - to build a better future for the children of Bolton. It has been great to see children and adults working together for the same purposes over the first day of the event.

I'm not at the conference but it looks great and I'd like to add my congratulations to the 'gang of four' who set this blog up. If it is true that we borrow the future from our children then it looks in safe hands to me.

Well, after Bolton's Future Search on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of September 2005 I journeyed up to Lancaster Leadership School to talk with other colleagues from Cheshire and Cumbria about their work on community leadership. I was proud to be able to relay, along with Brian and Kelly, a few highlights from our future search conference. I hope others will be inspired to run their own conferences - they seem keen to do so and recognise that this is a "meeting" with a difference!

Hope lots of people help to shape our way forward and communicate via this site..... Ingrid
