Sir Crispin Tickell: The Future of Cities

Part of the International Dialogues: Architecture and Climate Change series.

Around half the human species lives in cities. Yet as history shows, cities are particularly vulnerable to environmental change. Our current society is based on cheap energy from now dwindling sources of fossil fuel and we face a combination of hazards, in particular climate destabilization.

Join Sir Crispin Tickell as he discusses the future of cities and how they might look in a hundred years. Sir Crispin is Director of the Policy Foresight Programme at the James Martin Institute for Science and Civilization at Oxford University.

He has contributed to many books on environmental issues and was also a member of a Government Task Force on Urban Regeneration.

Respondent Sir Peter Hall, Bartlett Professor of Planning and Regeneration, UCL.
