Event description

Description

The world is urbanising at an unprecedented rate. Around 80% of the UK population lives in cities and around the globe people are flocking from rural to urban environments. This brings with it some of the great challenges of modern times. As increasing numbers of people move into cities more vehicles, resources and infrastructure are needed to support them, a major question is how cities can still remain green and liveable? Can this be done sustainably and with minimal environmental impact? With challenges around climate change, air quality, noise, biodiversity and aesthetics, is there space for urban biodiversity?

The UCL Sustainability team tackle some of these issues throughout our campus. Bringing together staff, students and UCL’s network of Green Champions, the team are able to drive forwards a sustainable strategy and vision for our campus whilst also encouraging academics and students to undertake valuable research on the UCL estate. On October 5th members of the Sustainability team will be running guided tours around campus to showcase how sustainability is embedded into UCL's campus.




Part of the UCL It's All Academic Festival, a free day packed full of talks, panel discussions, screenings, performances, workshops, interactive stands, exhibitions and tours. Join us to discover, discuss and be inspired by the exceptional breadth of research taking place at UCL. In between, relax and refresh with a range of pop-up food and drink stalls.
