Green Sky Thinking seeks innovative projects for 2014 programme

It has been a wet and windy start to London’s New Year. To date this January the Thames Barrier has been raised on 13 consecutive tides. To put it into context the barrier has been raised a total of 139 times in the last 31 years, (averaging four times per year). With evidently increasing strains to the city’s infrastructure and built environment, how do we ensure London sustains itself?

By profiling current developments and strategy across London, Open-City’s Green Sky Thinking 2014, which takes place from April 28 to May 2, aims to address this and other concerns as the city grows.

Through onsite talks and events, the week gives an inside view from top experts, industry leaders and collaborative teams of how we could move towards successfully ‘greening’ the city.

This year’s themes will address:


Does the city perform? From building performance and human behaviour, to public realm and infrastructure optimisation.


Is the city future-proof? Events will consider subjects including housing retrofit, high street regeneration and resource security.


Where does London rank in the most liveable cities in the world? 55th


What is the value of sustainability - a financial driver, a social conscious, or an environmental mitigation?

Open-City is currently seeking new participants to host an event during the programme’s week.

The initiative is open to all built environment sectors – including architects, engineers, designers, project managers, construction professionals and others.

We’d love to have you take part, for more information visit www.greenskythinking.org.uk
