On 18 September a group of international experts representing local and national governments, academia and the private sector met in London to discuss how the world is thinking about the future of cities.
As part of our evidence-gathering, the lead expert group and project team has engaged with a number of UK cities to hear directly from them about their views on the future.
Sir Alan Wilson and Corinne Swain, members of the Future of Cities lead expert group, recently travelled to Leeds, to discuss the project.
Sir Mark Walport recently travelled to Manchester, Liverpool and Lancaster, accompanied by lead expert Rachel Cooper and the Future of Cities team, to discuss the challenges and opportunities faced by the cities in the coming decades.
At the end of February we headed to Birmingham, the place that's often cited as 'the UK's second city’.
In this blog post, a member of the Project Team describes a visit that Sir Mark Walport recently made to the North East.
In the first Future of Cities blog post the Government Chief Scientific Adviser, Sir Mark Walport, explains what the project is about and what experts in Cambridge have to say about it.
