George speaking at 'Smarter Cities Smarter Thinking' conference, 22 June 2012

Many definitions of a ‘sustainable city’ include a statement about ‘people’ being at its heart, yet in reality they are often not incorporated effectively. Only by integrating people, place and practice as a two-way process, can fundamental and lasting change be achieved for our cities. Collaboration between practitioners and the industry to develop solutions is therefore paramount.

This conference, organised by The British Council, aims to highlight examples of smarter and creative thinking in the way existing cities are being made more sustainable for the future, showcasing more holistic approaches that generate social and economic alongside environmental benefits.  George will be participating in the second day on People and Practice.  For more information visit the Open House website
