Energy Transitions Research at the University of Cambridge

Wednesday, 14 January, 2015 - 17:30 to 19:00
Event location: 
The McGrath Centre, St Catharine's College

The ratio of people living in cities compared to rural areas is set to rise to 7 out of every 10 people by 2050. Can we rethink how we design and live in cities? How will cities adapt to the challenges facing them in the future? What new research and new connections would help us to prepare for these challenges?

Between October 2013 and June 2014, the Forum brought together a policy- and decision-makers from governments and business, technical experts and researchers to talk about these issues and make connections between different facets of sustainability, the environment in future cities and governance needed to support them. These ideas have been distilled into an output and a panel of experts from the Forum will use this as starting point to talk about future research agendas related to where we live in cities.

The panel includes:

Professor Doug Crawford-Brown, Director of the Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research
Professor Koen Steemers, Professor of Sustainable Design in the Department of Architecture
Professor Peter Guthrie, Director of the Centre for Sustainable Development in the Department of Engineering
