Sustainable Cities

The UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities (GCSC)


By the end of the 21st century, 80% of humanity will live in cities. The rapid growth will further stress the urban environment, posing complex and systemic problems in areas such as food security, energy, water, waste, transport, economy, trade, manufacturing, wealth creation and quality of life – problems we are poised to address.

UCL GCSC is concerned with contributing to urban sustainability in spheres including, for example, ecology, aesthetics, health, economics, culture, equity and intellect.

Our great strengths are the variety of prisms through which we can examine the sustainability of cities and the range of methodologies with which we can bring about change. Across our disciplines members of the GCSC community all have significant contributions to make. We seek to build on existing work, to enhance and integrate it, and to maximise its impact on policy and practice. Only by working together can we achieve urban sustainability.
