The Urban Living Global Challenge: A Prospectus

There is a wealth of international learning on the productive potential of activity that seeks to understand, map and shape the future city by linking research scholarship to policy development. In response to a request from the seven research councils and Innovate UK to consider some lessons that might inform the development of the UK Urban Living programme, this report summarises a survey of initiatives in this space globally. The selection of comparators is not exhaustive but was based on a short desk-based exercise, drawing on advice from Urban Living partners.

This report was written for the Urban Transformations Oxford City Futures: Spring Symposium held on 4 & 5 May, 2017.
