UrbanBuzz: Building Sustainable Communities

The two-year UrbanBuzz year programme has developed new ways of delivering genuinely sustainable forms of development and community in London and the wider south-east region.

The programme funded 27 innovative projects, each of which tackled aspects of sustainable community development. Areas of activity included low carbon living, community engagement, sustainable transport solutions, community mapping, urban agriculture and designing out anti-social behaviour.

A range of UrbanBuzz video and multimedia clips are available:
