The UK Sustainable Cities Initiative
The Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) recently launched a new initiative designed to address the design and management of cities across the UK. The Sustainable Cities initiative gathers data from two years of research by a team of 30 experts and the English Core Cities group. The goal to make cities low carbon has grown to a massive project addressing affordable housing, energy security and job generation. The group has identified climate change as a direct challenge to the efficency of managing a town or city and have created this initiative as a framework of priorities for the future.
