Cambridge Forum for Sustainability and the Environment



Today, more people live in cities than in rural areas and, by 2050, this ratio is predicted to rise to 7 out of every 10 people. Can we rethink how we design and live in cities? What will the impact of increasing numbers of people living in cities be on society, or biodiversity, or on food, water and energy security?

On the evening of the 19th March, the Forum, the Cambridge Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP) and the Energy@Cambridge Initiative are co-hosting a Science Festival event with panel of distinguished speakers who will focus on some of the most pressing challenges faced by our cities.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Laurence Sherman (Director of the Institute and Wolfson Professor of Criminology, The Institute for Criminology)
  • Mark Kleinman (Director, Economic and Business Policy at the Greater London Authority
  • Professor Doug Crawford-Brown (Director, Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research - 4CMR)
  • Dr Britt Baillie (Affiliated Lecturer: Division of Archaeology and Research Member, Centre for Urban Conflicts Research)
