Sustainable Urban Futures

Sustainable Urban Futures Residential

Applications have now closed for the Sustainable Urban Futures Residential at Churchill College, University of Cambridge. Information for students taking part in the 2023 programme follows.

Sustainable Urban Futures engages students as part of a team, designing and building a temporary “home” based on informal settlement shelters. They have the opportunity to learn about different cultures and work within budgets, designing and innovating to make the shelter a comfortable, practical space to live and work. On the final day, they take part in a mini-conference, sharing work, and hearing inspiring talks from design, making and sustainable development role models.

The programme provides tasters of a range of university degree subjects, from Engineering to Architecture, and how they contribute to  Sustainable Development, as well as giving students an insight into what it is like to studying at university.
