These are the challenges driving the formation of the Engineering Exchange at UCL. This workshop will address the ethical and practical issues associated with setting up and running the Engineering Exchange. We are particularly keen for representatives of community based organisations to participate in the workshop to help formulate strategies and actions based on community needs and expectations.Cities Methodologies is an ongoing programme of events and exhibitions dedicated to presenting, sharing and experimenting with new methods of urban research. You can see the other events lined up for the week here.
