23 October: UrbanBuzz - Building Sustainable Communities

23 October 2007

David Cobb – UCL Business

UrbanBuzz is a unique UCL-led knowledge-exchange £5 million programme in the field of sustainable communities. It takes knowledge mainly from the academic base and converts it into useful tools and processes for practitioners to help them create safer and better places in which to live and work. Its two-year life has funded a diverse portfolio of 28 projects, all of which are required to create education and training mechanisms to ensure real outcomes are achieved. The lecture will describe the challenges for delivering the programme and, by way of case studies, illustrate the benefits and legacies being generated at a time when sustainable environmental considerations have risen near the top of the political agenda.
