Event series and prize workshop from Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities and Future of London

Panel Discussion Series


In May 2014 UCL's Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities will be running a series of events focusing on retrofit. Succesful retrofit depends on a number of factors, including available technology, current policy, making a business case and understanding human behaviour. 

Join us for three panel discussions which will explore these issues in relation to  three different drivers for retrofit: the environment, heritage, and health.

You can register for the panel sessions on Eventbrite
