RECLAIM (Reclaiming Forgotten Cities)

CIM is one of the leading teams of the UKRI awarded RECLAIM network

RECLAIM (Reclaiming Forgotten Cities) is a new project involving Dr. Calvillo from the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (Warwick) to support Britain’s towns and cities as they adapt to the impacts of climate change.

The aim of the RECLAIM (Reclaiming Forgotten Cities) network is to create a multi-disciplinary and cross-sectoral network to maximise the social, ecological, urban, and economic positive impacts of green-blue-grey-infrastructure. The network has a central ambition of addressing the levelling up agenda by incorporating both social justice issues and ecological quality into the design of multi-functional grey, green and blue space in cities, to ensure liveable cities which are sustainable and resilient to the future challenges.

The network has been awarded £1.5 million from UK Research and Innovation and is led by the University of Surrey in collaboration with the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UKCEH), as well as the Universities of Bath, Bangor and Warwick. The network already has more than 200 academic, non-academic and industrial partners and is rapidly growing.
