Sustainability as if people mattered

event on
16 November

The Sustainable Housing and Urban Studies Unit (SHUSU) is pleased to invite you to the fourth celebration event in its 21st anniversary series, ‘Sustainability as if people mattered: Local projects, future directions.’

Featuring research under the unit’s Sustainability and Society theme, this workshop and panel discussion will bring together disparate but connected research on health, energy, greenspace and active transport. It will explore the linkages between these themes and identify priorities for future research. The event will be held at Islington Mill, a creative reuse of industrial heritage that describes itself as ‘a place where anything feels possible’.

The programme features a set of presentations based on activities that bring together environmental and social policy issues, delivered jointly by academic researchers and partners from outside the University:

– Keeping People Warm And Well: Changes4Warmth
– Investing In Future Housing: Erneley Close Retrofit
– Green Activity As Care And Therapy: The Garden Needs Project
– Making Cycling For Everyone: Training For Cycling And Driving

These will be followed by a discussion featuring a panel of experts with experience across this diverse field at local and national scales. The event will close with a reception and further opportunity for discussion.

The event provides an opportunity to learn about research relating to environment and society as well as positive projects happening in Greater Manchester and beyond.
