In October 2015, eight PhD students, including Kristen MacAskill from the Centre (MPhil 10-11), were awarded Future Cities Prize Fellowships to present their ideas of what cities will be like at the first annual Future Cities conference in July 2016.
They each received £2000 to develop a short research paper and to summarise their ideas about how future cities may be designed, operated and lived within to meet social, economic and environmental aims. They will also present a poster showcasing their ideas at the first annual Future Cities conference in Cambridge in June 2016.
The Future Cities programme is funded through a generous gift from Capital & Counties and is being hosted by the Department of Land Economy, in collaboration with the Cambridge Forum for Sustainability and the Environment.
