This is the first event in our 4-part Urban Challenge initiative through which we hope to highlight and support ideas to change the way we design, manage our built environment.

Our key-note speakers will set out the main urban challenges facing us as we emerge from the Covid era.

We will also hear about new research and evidence explaining how we used urban areas during lockdown and our attitudes to the buildings and places around us. 

Lastly, we will introduce our challenge groups – which will develop and test ideas over the course of this initiative.  There will be 4 groups looking at town centres, living local, buildings and city structures.
