Laurie Winkless: Science and the City

Building a city – or in Christchurch’s case, rebuilding one – is an enormous and complex challenge. This fascinating and timely session looks at the science that goes into making a metropolis. In conversation with Michelle Dickinson, Ireland’s Laurie Winkless, author of Science and the City, will examine cities in six continents to find out how they deal with the challenges of feeding, housing, powering and connecting more people than ever before. She’ll visit urban pioneers from history, along with today’s experts, and uncover the vital role science has played in shaping the cities where we live.
