Think Tank

Future Visions

Exploring ideas around a restorative/ net positive built environment, based on our understanding of environmental limits and social equality, and drawing on both best practice and emerging knowledge from leading practitioners and thinkers from around the globe about creating exemplary projects at both the building and neighbourhood level.

Grand Challenges

Identifying areas that need systemic change, both across the industry and at a cultural level, and then developing disruptive, collaborative responses about how change can be achieved, resulting in systems maps to show what change (and new system infrastructure) is needed to meet the grand challenge.

Exemplar Projects

Engagement in exemplary regeneration/ development projects or exemplary buildings, through the provision of strategic advice or peer review support, and through the creation and promotion of case studies and performance evidence in exhibitions, awards and the media.



The Sustainable Development Foundation has helped to create a number of leading non-profit organisations.
