Governance, Policy and Knowledge in Urban Sustainability

The project Governance, Policy and Knowledge in Urban Sustainability seeks to understand mainstream and alternative approaches to sustainability and encourage a dialogue between stakeholders engaged in the struggle for sustainable urbanism. The project is a partnership between the Centre for Sustainable Urban and Regional Futures at the University of Salford, the Greater Manchester Low Carbon Hub of the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities and Mistra Urban Futures. Through this approach, the project plays a role in influencing the decisions and choices of decision-makers and increasing dialogue between practitioners responsible for the sustainability of Greater Manchester. Identifying pathways between mainstream and alternative approaches to sustainability through interviews, focus groups and in maintaining an updated baseline assessment are crucial aspects of the work carried out in the project.
