UDG's June round up



Walking and cycling to and from railway stations
This event looked at best practice in providing high quality access to railway stations, aiming to provide passengers travelling on foot, by bicycle or bus, safe, comfortable, attractive and direct routes, that will help to make railway use a first choice over the use of a car.
Chaired by Jeremy Leach, London Living Streets with presentations from:
Richard Crutchley | David Harrison | Christopher Martin | Declan McCafferty | Toby Meadows | Dundee University Postgraduate Students 

Evolution of the City | Aleppo
The first in a series of international events to develop our understanding of how towns and cities develop in response to environment, economy, politics and culture.
Chaired by Robert Huxford, UDG Director with presentations from:
Dr Husam AlWaer | Dr Hala Asslan | Dr Ali Esmaiel
