This event from Smart Urbanism will ask: ‘How can we put in place the conditions for many small positive activities to emerge and create a thriving, adaptable and sustainable urban realm?’
Prof. Kelvin Campbell, chair of Smart Urbanism and recent winner of the the lifetime achievement award for urban design, will discuss a better way of making cities: Where top-down planning enables progressive, sustainable building, and supports the development of green infrastructure, local business and social enterprise, and other bottom-up processes.
The input of changemakers from across the professional sectors is critical: Every piece to the puzzle of what makes urbanism work in all its dimensions is needed. You’re invited – Help us develop the language for this new approach.
