We are a corporate member of the RSA because it brings us into contact with a range of high quality thinking about how urban forms work or could work and how public policy can most effectively act in terms of economic geography. It helps us think about cities in new and creative ways that enhance our ability to form evidence based strategy and work effectively to implement it.
