Fighting climate change is the challenge of our century. Since about 80% of all people are expected to live in urban areas by 2050, the global campaign for sustainability will be won, or lost, in cities.


Over the past five years, Remourban researchers have tackled the challenge and turned three cities into sustainable areas. Valladolid in Spain, Nottingham in the United Kingdom and Tepebaşı in Turkey acted as role models for future city planning. With energy, transport and communication technologies going hand in hand the researchers were able to achieve remarkable economic, social and environmental benefits to also improve citizens´ quality of life.


By engaging with citizens, industry and policy makers the Remourban model can be scaled up and replicated by other cities.
