UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities (GCSC): Outcomes
error message: 'lancet2'
A poster presentations from the Carbon Governance Project that considers the links between energy governance and climate change governance.
The presentation considers the tensions between the two regimes and argues that a more integrated approach is required to avoid conflicting agendas and to create synergies in policy making.
A special issue of the International Journal of Urban Sustainable Development
A special issue of IJUSD covering Urban Water Poverty was edited by Adriana Allen (DPU) and Sarah Bell (CEGE). The special issue built on work supported by the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities: a Public Panel discussion (pdf) and an Expert Symposium, led by Adriana Allen and Sarah Bell
This publication brings together diverse interdisciplinary perspectives seeking answers to the following questions:
- What do we know about urban water poverty and how to tackle it?
- What additional conceptual frameworks can shed light into the way in which water material and immaterial flows produce cities and accumulation and deprivation within them?
- What needs to be done differently if we are to put this knowledge into practice up to and beyond 2015?
More information about the supporting events can be found on the Urban Water Poverty Project Page.
Adriana Allen is a Senior Lecturer at UCL Development Planning Unit (DPU) and Co-director of the Environment Institute theme on Sustainable Cities
Sarah Bell is a Senior Lecturer at UCL Civil, Geomatic & Environmental Engineering (CEGE) and Co-director of the Environment institute theme on Water Security
The Food Junctions Cookbook ties people together through a common interest in food, and represents a genuine collaboration between UCL, London’s local communities and beyond.
The Food Junctions Cookbook is more than a recipe book, it includes things to cook, but mixes in practice, politics and pleasure. Some 70 contributors share their ‘living recipes’ for things to eat, things to think about and above all things to do. Get yourself ready to try some of these living recipes: how to taste wine, open up a catering co-op, deal with food waste, prevent children obesity, make delicious dishes from wild plants and grow food in the city.
This Cookbook is another step on a collective journey that began with Food Junctions in 2010, which explored the significance of food, culminating in a festival that celebrated food in and as community, and shared new ways of thinking about what we produce and consume.
*The book is sold on a not for profit basis: proceeds from sales are used to continue this project and to support local communities around London.
