IE University Center for Sustainable Cities

From the center's website:

IE School of Architecture and Design imparts this crucial comprehensive approach to sustainability across all of its academic programs and extra-curricular initiatives to address the importance of mitigating  environmental degradation and climate change in the built  and natural environment.  As an educational institution we have a responsibility to train future leaders who will have to shape a more humane, sustainable world and to create and disseminate knowledge.

Understanding that urbanization is increasing at a pace and scale never before experienced in the history of the our world,  IE School of Architecture and Design has established the Center for Sustainable Cities.  Urban areas more than any other arena are feeling the effects of climate change and these pose serious threats to quality of life,  urban infrastructure, and other urban systems, in both developing and rich countries.   The Center for Sustainable Cities embraces the United Nations  Sustainable Development Goals and seeks to further their implementation through research, education and outreach.
