How can we make our cities sustainable? This Fellowship event brings together Fellows, local and international academics, the local authority and wider community to develop an action plan for future sustainable development initiatives in Leicester.

Our guest speaker is Professor Matthew Hibberd FRSA, of the University of Lugano, Switzerland, who will talk about Youth Engagement and Climate Change. We will also hear from DMU colleagues engaged with the City Council in the emerging Smart City Plan for Leicester. The evening will also include some of the works in progress around mental health literacy and peace journalism.

These contributions will be our prompts for an evening of purposeful discussion as we explore how we might work together to help make Leicester a sustainable city.

There will also be time for networking and general conversation. Light refreshments will be available.

This event is free to attend and open to Fellows, friends, and colleagues interested in supporting the work of the RSA.

Our next event takes place on Thursday 6th June at the Leicester Innovation Hub where we will be exploring the Future of Work.
