The evidence suggests that a process of standardisation of urban sustainability policies and practices may currently be taking place. But how might this work? What critical questions need to be asked? And should we welcome this trend as a basis for future policy and practice development?

This major international conference will review the recent proliferation of different types of eco-city frameworks around the world. It will include the launch of a report drawing on a three-year multicentre programme of research, and presentations from a series of leading international policymakers and practitioners.

There is no charge for attendance, but early booking is recommended.
