Event description

Description

More than half of the 7.5 billion people on the planet now live in cities. Air pollution, overburdened infrastructure, biodiversity loss, and climate change currently threaten sustainable urban growth. How can we meet the needs of growing urban populations without sacrificing the natural environment and future sustainability ?

Join the discussion at our Future Cities Symposium on the 2nd of August where we will be addressing this critical issue.

Speakers from a range of backgrounds are going to share their insight into the challenges and opportunities for human health, biodiversity, infrastructure, and climate change in 21st century cities.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Dr Sarah Bell: Senior Lecturer in Environmental Engineering at UCL and editor of the book ‘Imagining the Future City: London 2062’
  • Andy Edwards: Cofounder of Transition by Design Cooperative
  • David Thorpe: Founder of the One Planet Council and author of 'The One Planet Life, a Blueprint for Low Impact Living'
  • Dr Stephen Hall: Research Fellow at the School of Earth and Environment, Leeds University
  • Charlie Roscoe: PhD student at the Centre for Environment and Health, Imperial College London

Doors will open at 5pm with tea and coffee waiting for you, and refreshments and wine will be available from 8pm.
