UKELA Annual Conference 

The University of Nottingham - University Park Campus 

Friday 7th - Sunday 9th July 2017


Cities of the Future - legal challenges & opportunities for more sustainable living

More than half the world's population now lives in towns and cities and this is growing inexorably. Living sustainably in cities is therefore a key challenge for politicians, planners, engineers, architects and lawyers.

UKELA's 2017 Conference will cast light on the role of lawyers and regulators in making cities more sustainable, sharing knowledge and best practice relevant to the UK context.

Our three plenaries will:

Look at the global role of cities and city governance, in particular in relation to addressing climate change;

Review the tools for designing sustainable cities - such as planning & building regulations; and 

Assess current and future practice in legal frameworks to address the most serious urban environmental issues, such as air quality, biodiversity and waste.

We look forward to welcoming you to Nottingham in July!
