As part of our ongoing programme of work on sustainable cities, each year UK-GBC collaborates with a different city to get under the skin of the challenges they face. This collaboration takes the form of a ‘city summit’, in which we bring together local understanding with our national network of industry expertise. The goal of the summits is always to produce some tangible output for the city and our professional network to take forward and develop. The links on the left hand side give more information about the work we have done so far.
Taking place on 21 - 22 January 2015, the 'conference' showcased the city’s built environment vision and aspirations; and provided the city with a unique opportunity to get input into its strategy and specific development opportunities. Read more.
The two-day conference, immersed delegates in the big sustainability issues facing cities through inspiring presentations and lively panel sessions, and delivered in depth learning grounded in real life scenarios via facilitated workshops, collaborative group work and site visits to development opportunities. Developed in partnership with Birmingham City Council, the goal was to help shape a lasting impact on the sustainability of Birmingham’s built environment, but the Summit was relevant for all those with a passion for sustainable cities and the outputs will be of value beyond Birmingham.
