Urban Sustainability and Resilience

Urban Sustainability and Resilience

Our cities and the societies living in and around them face immense challenges arising from the growth of population, urbanisation, globalisation, climate change, ageing, resource scarcity, technology shifts, cultural diversity and conflict. Universities, their research communities and partners in industry and society can play a vital role in addressing these challenges. This School will explore how researchers can develop to take advantage of the diversity of disciplinary and societal cultures available to them to access new career opportunities.
