Urban Futures Salford Manchester is a research portal created by the Greater Manchester Local Interaction Platform (GM LIP) for Mistra Urban Futures. The GMLIP provides a space for researchers and practitioners to work together on common projects such as governing sustainability, the value of community hubs and even Platform itself. We are interested in understanding what is happening to the sustainable cities agenda in 21st century Greater Manchester and how the knowledge and skills of different stakeholders can contribute to a more sustainable transition.
This portal has been developed to provide blogs and updates on our work as well as easy access to the research findings and reports as they become available. Over time, we hope to include more insights from other researchers working on issues relevant to the communities, neighbourhoods, places and cities that make up Greater Manchester.
