The Bartlett Annual Review puts the past remarkable year in focus and examines the most pressing issues for the built environment in 2020. Explore the faculty's insights and ideas on the climate crisis, diversity and inclusion in urban spaces, and what the future could hold as we recover from the pandemic.

The Bartlett Climate Change Taskforce was set up at the start of 2020 by Professor Christoph Lindner, Dean of The Bartlett, in response to the climate crisis.  

The Taskforce, chaired by Dr Catalina Turcu and Professor Aeli Roberts, aims to build an understanding of climate-relevant work across The Bartlett’s 12 schools and departments, collating research and teaching, and creating recommendations on how The Bartlett can tackle the climate crisis. “The climate crisis tends to exacerbate existing inqualities, and create new ones,” says Dr Turcu.

The team are now beginning to shape and frame their recommendations.
