  1. Creating sustainable urban realities: Eco-cities • The current proportion of global population inhabiting cities as well as the population growth predicted for the mid-term future makes it imperative that cities and their regions become self-sustained. • For this to be achieved, a wide range of factors must be considered, including governance, policy, education, jobs, housing, transport networks, the local economy and the environment • Using expertise in systems engineering, Bristol is playing a leading role in the development of models and tools that allow the interaction of these factors to be analysed in the design of sustainable urban environments. Developing the components of sustainable urban growth: Eco-houses • • Eco-House is a sustainable building project, designed to provide high efficiency, low maintenance and affordable accommodation that satisfies the client’s needs with minimum environmental impact. • The project has proved highly successful in achieving this aim through the application of improved design methods and materials selection. Success factors • The success of such projects is measured by identifying whether the needs of stakeholders are satisfied and the level to which use of non-renewable resources is reduced, both in the construction and throughout the lifetime of the built environment. • Knowledge is being shared through the development of worldwide networks of expertise and learning. The Built Environment The creation of sustainable urban environments, which provide a high quality of life to their inhabitants, requires appropriate policy, education and the development of new technologies. The University is addressing this need through a range of interdisciplinary research. Design : L.W. Chan, J.L.H. Chen, C.C.S. Li, N.
