Conference: Cities, Communities and Homes: Is the Urban Future Livable?

Place: Derby. Dates: 22 – 23 June 2017.

Abstracts: 01st March 2017


This event is part of a global series of conferences and publications that critique multiple built environment issues. The connecting theme is housing.

In this event series, housing can be dealt with head on as its own subject, with a multitude of problems. However, it can also be seen as a thematic topic allowing us to explore how the built environment functions as a
complex and interconnected phenomenon directly linked to urban design and planning, as well as other issues such as community resilience, economic development, planning policy, creative design practice, etc.


This specific event is organised with the University of Derby.

The series is organised by a collection of UK publishers and universities including: The University of Derby, The University of the West of England, London South Bank University Liverpool and John Moores University, UCL
Press and Libri Publishing. It is coordinated by the UK non-profit research organisation AMPS as part of its engagement with the UN habitat University Initiative.
