Smart Sustainable Cities

We have designed and delivered this programme, bringing together more than 50 cities across the UK and Europe, with businesses and academics to share best practice, innovation, collaboration and networking for smart and sustainable cities in deep-dive interactive workshops.

Since inception in 2017, we have delivered workshops on Sustainable Cities, Smart Cities, Energy & Heat Networks, Smart Mobility, and Circular Economy.

The aim of the initiative is to exchange knowledge and build an ongoing knowledge exchange base for UK and EU city representatives for best and leading edge practice in smart sustainable cities.

We designed and delivered the strategic, communications and tour-based elements for the workshop tours including the business and city engagement strategy, agendas, brand, logo, website, and securing high-profile speakers and tour locations.

We created an online outward facing portal for the initiative  (www.smartsustainablecities.uk) that hosts participant city case studies, a #slack channel for ongoing communication and file sharing, and a LinkedIn Group for ongoing discussions and networking. We raised the profile of the initiative with an intense, yet purely organic, Twitter campaign.

We held workshops in Glasgow (Circular Economy), Madrid  (Transforming mobility in the low carbon city), and Manchester (Delivering the energy transition).

The initial workshops were held in Bristol (Smart Cities) and London (Sustainable Cities) in 2018. We worked with a consortium of partners for these two workshops.

“Not only were you able to pull together an outstanding programme at short notice but your engagement with cities in the UK and across Europe enabled us to secure the participation of key cities and companies, making the workshops a resounding success.”
