Guerrilla Stakeholders – Growing Cities

80% of the built environment that we need already exists, so how do we renovate and retrofit to make it fit for our future needs? How much housing does the UK really need? Does the built environment make it more difficult to provide safe policing and crime prevention? Do the spaces between buildings provide the key to happy cities? Will Geotechnology helps us to identify and clear more land for use? With the increase in urbanisation, will migration and population growth lead to different choices in our cities? How do we care for our ageing population?


Our expert voices cover a wide range of topics and perspectives, including:

  • Renovation and retrofit of buildings and places
  • The increasing need for housing
  • Managing crime and emergency services in expanding cities
  • The importance of life between buildings
  • Geotechnology and archaeology
  • The move towards increased urbanisation
  • Migration and population growth
  • The needs and considerations of an ageing population
  • Integrating communities, cultures, and faiths in growing cities
  • Human and cultural geography, and its influence on our identity



We have mapped these topics to create lesson plans for:

  • Biology
  • Geography
  • Sociology
  • Art
  • History
  • Religious Education
  • PSHE
