This Funzing Experience:
Cities are rapidly becoming the most important places on earth as more than 50% of the global population live in urban areas, with that figure set to rise to 70% by 2050. In addition to this, the threats posed by human-induced climate change including flooding, extreme weather, heat and drought are becoming more widespread and severe. Clearly long-term urban planning is now of
great importance and the more we understand about how cities operate, the better we can plan sustainably for the future.

This interactive lecture will challenge current thinking of cities by drawing from alternative future planning approaches. What will cities look like in the future and how can citizens make sure they give themselves the best chance of a healthy and happy life? Collectively, we will produce creative planning suggestions for a green future which truly balance the natural, human and built environment. By the end of the session, you will have new ideas about how we might live within the boundaries which humanity is setting for itself in this time of global change.

Venue: Twenty Twenty Two's, Manchester

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
