Cities and urban areas drive innovation, creativity and growth. In the UK, 80% of us live in them. By 2050 nearly three-quarters of the global population will live them. Successful cities are critical to the future of humankind.

  • How do we enhance citizen health and happiness?
  • Can we create a carbon neutral city by 2050?
  • How can we improve mobility around the city and enhance access to services and employment?
  • How can we make the city truly inclusive and deliver equality?

The aim of this 18 month project, which started in June 2016, was to create a novel Integrated Diagnostics Framework and methods to address several key urban challenges. This framework brought together multiple viewpoints from across the study area to reduce fragmentation and conflicts around how to create a more resilient, healthy, prosperous and sustainable city. The framework is intended to be used to diagnose complex problems across four ‘Challenge Themes’: Mobility & Accessibility, Health & Happiness, Equality & Inclusion and the ‘Carbon Neutral’ city.

Bristol Green Capital Partnership led the ‘Carbon Neutral’ theme – visit to find out more.
