TOPICS FROM THE 2017 CONFERENCE
Session One of Creating Sustainable Cities 2017 explored the Future of the UK's Energy Landscape. Hosted by 10:10 Climate Action and with talks from Forum for the Future, Southend Borough Council and Oxfordshire County Council.
Session Two looked at how you best engage with a Sustainable City. With the Thomson Reuters Foundation hosting the session, our speakers from Pure Leapfrog, Julie's Bicycle and the University of Portsmouth set out how you can bring together city stakeholders to create more sustainable cities.
The Benefits of Urban
In 2016 one of our most popular sessions was based on urban greening. So we repeated that success with a new lineup of speakers from Imperial College London, University of Essex and Atkins Global. Hosted by the excellent Project Dirt.
The final session of the afternoon explored the role that urban innovations, new technology and services can play in helping to point our cities and towns towards a more sustainable future. Hosted by Ashden, with speakers from Innovate UK, Future Cities Catapult and Imperial College London.
Can cities play a role in helping to reduce the growing environmental threat of plastic pollution? We were delighted to have Emily Penn as our special guest speaker in 2017.
