Designing a really sustainable city
University staff will exploring the big transformations needed across different aspects of city life to make them sustainable in a meaningful and substantial way. From transport and energy to housing and the economy, how can cities be redesigned in ways that shift away from the business as usual model of conventional economic growth, climate breakdown, austerity and rising social inequality; and towards models that ensure prosperity for all, social equality and ecological regeneration? This interactive day long workshop is for students and non students alike from any and all disciplines – both the sciences and social sciences, engineering and medicine. The bigger the range of interests and knowledge the better.
