Urban Sustainability for the Twenty-four Hour City

VivaCity2020 is an ambitious, 5-year research project developed by the Sustainable Urban Environments consortium. Commencing April 2003, this EPSRC-funded research initiative will deliver practical tools and resources to support sustainable and socially responsible urban design decision-making.

The consortium comprises the University of Salford, University College London, Central St. Martins, London Institute and Sheffield Hallam University, together with more than 30 partner organisations. Adopting an action research methodology, VivaCity2020 will analyse urban planning, design and consultation processes to identify when and how key decisions related to urban sustainability are made.
