James Paskins (VP: Research): Addressing the Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities

3.4 billion people live in cities, making these densely packed, complex, built systems home to nearly half the of world’s population. UCL has identified urban sustainability as a key area of societal relevance, an area in which a solid research base can inform policy and practice. UCL research strategy highlights the importance of bringing cross-disciplinary teams together to deliver research, engagement and outreach work with real impact.

As well as looking ahead to 50 years after the Olympics with the London 2062 project, the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities (GCSC) has been trying to unlock the urban health advantage, deliver sustainable transport, and use different cultural perspectives to change energy use behaviour.

This poster will outline the work of UCL GCSC, including coverage of our recent commission for the Lancet and examples from our vibrant small grants scheme.
