Our 10 May accountability assembly
What sort of Nottingham do we want to create? That was the question on the lips of hundreds of people passionate about Nottingham's future as they gathered with community and civic leaders at the city's Albert Hall for an assembly to propose action to help improve the lives, security and prosperity of citizens and celebrate the achievements of the Nottingham Citizens alliance and its partners so far.
Read the assembly programme to find out more about the commitments we were seeking from local authority leaders and other decision-makers on the night.
Around 800 people drawn from Nottingham Citizens' 37 constituent institutions gathered as proposals for tackling issues such as hate crime, homelessness, air pollution and modern slavery, and improving mental health and social care provision, were presented to officials from public authorities in the city and county with a view to seeking their commitment to support the Citizens alliance to transform the ideas into life-changing action.
The event also reflected on achievements in the areas of work previously identified as priorities - for example, in lobbying for misogyny to be recognised as a hate crime by Nottinghamshire Police, a lead followed by other police forces - as well as recognising the valuable contributions to this work by politicians and public authority officials over the past few years.
