The world is primarily an urban place and so scholars, policy makers, and public debate needs to address the urbanity of human experience. Cities are often projected as sources of disorder and social problems, yet cities have always been sources of cultural creativity, transnational connection, diversity, conviviality, and motors of intellectual, economic, environmental and political transformation.

Centre for Urban and Regional Ecology

The Centre for Urban Resilience and Energy brings together a diverse group of researchers based in the School of Environment, Education and Development. CURE focuses on the relationships between sustainability transitions in the energy, urban and environment domains. We build on the intellectual strengths and traditions of the Centre for Urban and Regional Ecology, which was active at Manchester between 2000 and 2013.
