Education as a catalyst for regeneration

Wednesday 24 May 2017 -
11:30 to 12:45

As cities are increasingly tasked with driving innovation and creating environments that respond to the challenges of urbanisation, universities are also under increasing pressure to reach beyond academia. This session discusses how creative education is key to shaping these environments and explores the role that universities, particularly design and architecture schools, play in the regeneration of cities.
