BHP Billiton Sustainable Communities/UCL Grand Challenge Symposium Series

On November 5 and 6, 2013, the BHP Billiton Sustainable Communities/UCL Grand Challenge Symposium Series will focus on the Grand Challenge for Sustainable Cities, with a particular interest in the more sustainable use of natural resources. The symposium will specifically look to address the challenges around provision of resources for growing urban populations, with regard to the physical built environment, infrastructure, transport and water. It would aim to address the question of how cities can continue to meet their present needs without compromising the future of the city, the region or the planet.
