by University College London as part of the Leverhulme International
Research Network on Eco-city Frameworks.
A workshop to explore the processes and outcomes of research into existing and emerging schemes for assessing and certificating the sustainability of new urban development (BREEAM, BREEAM Communities, LEED, HQE, etc).
Particular attention will be paid to the value of conceptual frameworks building on socio-technical studies and the implications for research methodologies. The potential of international comparisons will also be addressed.
Numbers are limited and participants will be invited to book a place through Eventbrite. Please contact [email protected] to be informed of the booking process.
