Cambridge Forum for Sustainability and the Environment


In the first in our series of meetings about cities, three witnesses drawn from across Cambridge discussed how we could define sustainability in cities - socially, environmentally and economically.  We also touched on ways in which these interact together, for example how the built environment influences social sustainability, and what a 'successful' city might look like.
