Description

As part of the MSc Climate Change, Management and Finance guest lecture series, we are pleased to announce that Jim Coleman, from Oxford Policy Management, will be joining us on Friday 16th March, to discuss large-scale urban projects and the challenges of aligning economic and spatial strategy.

He will use a number of case studies to explore how economic growth needs to be planned for and the consequences of misalignment between economic strategy and spatial planning, particularly in terms of the long term sustainability of places.

We are opening this up to students from other programmes in the Business School and other departments across the College. There will be a chance to network afterwards with drinks and nibbles.
