How can we ensure our urban landscapes are sustainable, healthy and future-proof?

This is an online event hosted on Zoom. Bookers are sent a link in advance giving access.

Part of our Changing climate, changing landscapes online event series.

How will urban landscapes be affected by climate change? What can we do to adapt? With the majority of our population living in towns and cities, we need to make sure our urban landscapes are resilient and able to cope with the environmental impacts of climate change.

Housing, transport, food production, energy and infrastructure – how can we ensure our urban landscapes are sustainable, healthy and future-proof?

Drawing on discussions from the annual climate change conference COP26 and the latest knowledge about climate change adaptation, explore how we can manage environmental change in urban landscapes across Britain, and how we can make those who live in these landscapes more resilient.

Chaired by Hannah Fluck, (Head of Environmental Strategy at Historic England), this panel includes urban designer Wei Yang and Professor Neil Macdonald from the University of Liverpool and lead researcher on Building climate resilience through community, landscapes and cultural heritage (Clandage). Full panel details available here.

In partnership with The Institute for the Modelling of Socio-Environmental Transitions, Bournemouth University.
