Meet the core team

Championing a principled, radical and innovative agenda for lasting change, the Founder (and Trustee) Mark Southwood has spent nearly 40 years working in the environment and planning arena and is very aware of the key challenges for sustainability. His father was the biologist Sir Richard Southwood, who Chaired the Royal Commission of Environmental Pollution and was also involved in the first UK Roundtable on sustainability.

The Foundation benefits from the experience and expertise of a network of innovators, policy influencers, academics and industry specialists who share a common purpose of achieving meaningful change for the benefit of the public.

Getting there won’t be easy but we know we need to cooperate like never before. We believe the city of the future is not the result of technologies, however smart they may be but emerges from a collective intelligence, collaborative action and unlimited creativity.

To realise this potential, we will be guided by the TS_F Factor where ‘T’ means Tools, this can be time, knowledge or other resources, ‘S’ stands for Skills, both personal and professional, next it is Connectivity, linking people, passion and purpose and ‘F’ is Familiarity, based on the experience we can draw on.

Have you got the TS_F Factor?
