UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities
Cities – now home to more than half the world’s population- face complex and systemic problems. UCL is concerned with contributing to urban sustainability in the spheres of, for example, ecology, aesthetics, health, economics, culture, equity and intellect.
Our great strengths are the variety of prisms through which we can examine the sustainability of cities and the range of methodologies with which we can bring about change.
Across our disciplines members of the UCL community all have significant contributions to make. We seek to build on existing work, to enhance and integrate it, and to maximise its impact – through working together.
