Platform. The everyday portal for sharing knowledge and intelligence on sustainability across Greater Manchester.

Platform Live presentations: Food, Cities and Urban Behaviour

Platform Live: Food, Cities and Urban Behaviour featured a series of 7-minute talks, delivered by leading academics, business people, social entrepreneurs and international speakers from the Do Not Smile sustainable communications network.

Themes covered by the speakers included food, sustainability and waste; cider; communications and behaviour change; corporate sustainability and 'reputation'; mobility and sustainable travel; the ethics and future of communications...and many others.

The Platform Live event was staged in partnership with the University of Manchester, following a series of breakfast sustainability events at the John Rylands Library. It was the first extension of the online knowledge-sharing project Platform, itself a partnership between Creative Concern, the University of Salford Manchester, Mistra Urban Futures and Greater Manchester Combined Authority. The event was also part of the inaugral Greater Manchester Food Poverty Week.
