In order to address climate change and environmental sustainability, students, staff and academics at the University of Cambridge are using their estate as a test bed or 'Living Laboratory' to research real-world sustainability issues, thus linking research to practical action.

This session, which will use the University of Cambridge's Living Lab as a case study and include a contribution from a Cambridge Living Lab student, will provide guidance and best practice on how to set up and implement a Living Lab.
