The Academy of Urbanism

The Academy is an active, not-for-profit, politically independent membership organisation founded to expand our collective understanding of placemaking and to share best practice. We bring together the current and next generation of leaders, thinkers, and practitioners spanning the disciplines and sectors that contribute to great places.

Through our events, activities, and programmes, we draw out and disseminate examples and lessons of good urbanism. We use the evidence we gather to promote better understanding of how the development and management of the urban realm can provide a better quality of living for all.

Creating places that promote health and resilience is at the heart of our mission, and we are happy to endorse Healthy City Design International.
