Climate change is accelerating at an unprecedented rate due to rapid urbanisation.
New technology, geopolitical instability, and increasing socioeconomic inequality impact how cities are planned, built and lived in.
There is also an increasing need to look into issues arising from urbanisation, such as the design and use of the physical environment, climate change, population growth, environmental conservation, sustainable energy, food security and sustainability and water consumption.
The strength of the NUS Giving community lies in a common belief that we can all play a role in making the world a better place by creating impact where it matters. Read our stories here.
