Sustainable Neighbourhoods: Implications and Requirements

I am looking forward to presenting at the 2020 SAEEC Conference on the 4 – 6 November 2020. The presentation is on Sustainable Neighbourhoods and is based on research and local case study using the Built Environment Sustainability Tool (BEST). It addresses the following questions:

  • How can sustainability at a neighbourhood level be defined?
  • Can the performance of a neighbourhood in terms of sustainability be measured?
  • What are the implications of unsustainable aspects of neighbourhoods?
  • Where there are sustainability performance ‘gaps’ in neighbourhoods, how can these be tackled?
  • Can effective structured, shared plans be created to efficiently improve the sustainability of neighbourhoods?
