About

Leicester Urban Observatory is a collaboration between urban practitioners at Leicester City Council and academics at three local universities: De Montfort University, University of Leicester, and Loughborough University. It aims to establish and develop a combined centre of excellence in urban studies and planning for Leicester. It will do this by:

providing a shared platform for discussing urban issues from practical, theoretical, cultural and historical perpectives;

facilitating joint events and projects in the urban environment;

collaborating on joint research/study opportunities;

sharing expertise and resources that add value to component partner programmes and activities;

linking with other professional networks and academic institutes and associations relevant to the urban agenda.

If you would like to get details of upcoming free events and other information relating to the urban environment then please feel free to join the mailing list for the Urban Observatory by contacting us at leicesterurbanobservatory@gmail.com
