26 November, 2014 - Taking forward the EU resource efficiency agenda

Time: 16:00:00 - 19:00:00

Organised by Built Environment - The Bartlett

The process and outcome of the recent European Parliament Elections are proof, if any were needed, that EU governance and policy-making have moved into a new phase. The new European Commission will likely find that the days when it could be confident of Member States approving its binding new policies are past. New ways of proposing and winning support for policies from stakeholders are therefore needed if it is to see them adopted by Member States.

3 December, 2014 - The Graffiti Sessions

Time: -

Organised by UCL Urban Laboratory

Hosted by UCL Urban Laboratory, the Graffiti Dialogues Network at Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London) and Southbank Centre, the Graffiti Sessions will gather a wide group of experts to debate issues surrounding graffiti. We aim to identify new horizons for future city strategies on graffiti and opportunities and challenges for evolving creative practice, towards places that are both safe and sociable. The event comprises a three-day series of talks, workshops and panel debates exploring the evolving roles of graffiti and street art in the urban environment. The ambition is to challenge deep-rooted preconceptions and speculation that have until now limited the progress of both policy and practice related to street art and graffiti. Bringing together key institutions and individuals, the project will establish an open and sustainable discussion forum for the exchange of a broad scope of viewpoints and positions on street art and graffiti.

27 January, 2015 - MHealth Conference: How can mobile technology improve health in low and middle income countries

Time: 09:00:00 - 16:30:00

The UCL Institute for Global Health and Umeå Centre for Global Health Research, Sweden invite you to attend our conference on mHealth: Evidence from low- and middle-income countries. The first of its kind in the UK, this multidisciplinary event will assess the evidence base for mHealth in the world’s poorest settings. The explosive growth of mobile technology over the past decade has generated exciting new thinking around the potential of so called “mhealth” to improve health, with evidence beginning to emerge from high-income countries. However, the evidence base from low- and middle-income countries is weak. The two-day symposium will examine current debates around evidence within the fields of health systemsand health education, with a focus on tangible health outcomes
