Climate change and the demands of booming urban populations pose major challenges for the future of our planet.

Our new strategy Transformation, In Time is a systemic approach to transformative change. Our Deep Demonstration of Healthy, Clean Cities offers ‘systems innovation as a service’ to achieve rapid climate action and a green recovery through a holistic portfolio approach.

To deliver on our ambition, we build on our extensive portfolio of Innovation Projects, mobilize local communities through our long standing Climathon programme, engage stakeholders in our 1 Million Homes initiative, and catalyse our extensive network of start-ups and partners through dedicated opportunities. 

The Transition Hub, a visual toolbox for system innovation, is just one of the many skills-building resources on ourEducation Platform.
