The Royal Academy of Engineering’s London Design Festival Programme 2010

Designing a low carbon infrastructure for London

The Academy is proud to be a part of this year’s London Design Festival. Design is very much at the heart of the Academy’s activities as it is not only the fundamental discipline that underpins the wealth creating and societal potential of all engineering innovations, but will also become paramount in the years to come as the UK moves to an economy based on innovative high-value businesses and industries.

The Academy’s theme for their London Design Festival events is Designing a low carbon infrastructure for London. Much has been said of the need to reduce our carbon footprint and not enough talk of how it is actually going to be done. Join the Academy to view the exhibitions and take part in the events, debates and activities that will tackle this issue head on by people who can make low carbon living for Londoners a reality. Hear directly from the designers, engineers and entrepreneurs about cutting edge engineers design solutions that have been developed to reach London’s goal of sustainable living.

Whether you are a Londoner, school pupil, teacher, designer or artist, or simply want to know more about the real issues and practicalities of designing a low carbon city, our programme will have something to tempt you.
