At the event Aideen McGinley (ILEX) commented: "This model of collaborative thinking can very quickly change the city and set the pace leading into 2013”.
The event was a huge success in collaborative thinking and within a few weeks some interventions had already taken place as a direct result of discussions held at the workshop. Unnecessary road signage was removed and a new pathway linking to Guildhall Street from the Peace Bridge was implemented.

Going forward the key stakeholders will continue to work together to prepare Derry for the City of Culture year and build upon the lasting benefits that 2013 will provide for the city.
