It provides an up-to-date overview on the experiences of how cities around the world are making the transition to the green economy.
PublicationsLSE Cities’ annual conference brings together international and local expert essays on topical themes relating to 21st century urbanism. It has published two compendiums based on the Urban Age conferences with Phaidon, The Endless City (2008) and Living in the Endless City (2011), and several research reports, including as coordinating authors for the ‘Buidlings’ and ‘Cities’ chapters for the UNEP’s recent publication on the Green Economy. Further book projects developing the work on the Next Urban Economy and Cities, Health and Well-being are underway, and the centre’s work is also forthcoming in several articles with respected journals.
