But newdoesn’t necessarily mean better. (Consider theresidents of Brighton’s West Laine, whose entireneighbourhood was razed to make way for theBrutalist terraces of Churchill Square. See page 82.I doubt they were too enamoured with ‘the new’.)That said – judging by the state of things – it can’tbe that the old ways are always the best either.Perhaps we need to start with a blank sheet ofpaper. Rethink how we do things. Go back to thedrawing board?In these pages, you’ll find people who are startingfrom scratch, coming up with new ideas or daringto do things differently. Championing the new isOlga Hopton, MD of Plus X – the soon to openInnovation Hub on Lewes Road, where hundredsof creative thinkers will find the space to realisetheir ideas. Adam Bronkhorst meets some of themembers at PLATF9RM who are already sowingthe seeds of positive change. We drop in on FreeUniversity Brighton who organise free educationalevents across the city, and visit Brighton WaldorfSchool who are putting ecology and globalcitizenship on the timetable. And we climb aboardONCA’s repurposed Humber Barge – home totheir Curiosity Club, where young people workwith science, art and technology to find solutionsto real-world problems. I’ve no doubt that theywill soon be creating the world anew.If all that leaves you feeling inspired, it might betime to get on board yourself. Start something up.Share your ideas. Be part of the solution. Makeyour mark.
