Building Prosperous Cities Conference

27 September 2016

Cities are home to most of the population of the UK. Prosperous cities aren’t just about economic activity, they also provide access to greenspace, facilitate healthy lifestyles and help us adapt to climate change.

There remains a strong case for investment in the communications infrastructure and built infrastructure of UK cities for their future prosperity. But what about green infrastructure, the networks of natural features that are crucial for climate change adaptation and the health and wellbeing of city dwellers? Is green infrastructure fit for purpose for now and the future? If not, what city-scale policies and programmes might improve it? How do we make a more effective case for restoring the natural capital of our cities?

This conference is organised by the Ecosystems Knowledge Network. The programme will include case studies from UK cities that have put strategies into practice.
