For our July Urbano Build speaker breakfast, we will be joined by Jonathan Smales, Founder & CEO of Human Nature.

Human Nature is a new-generation sustainable developer, with ambitious plans to reform how residential spaces and housing developments are created. Human Nature’s first project, the Phoenix neighbourhood in Lewes, East Sussex, fulfils the ambition to create whole places not housing estates, with innovations in in construction and infrastructure that speed up delivery and with the aim to cultivate dynamic local communities.

Our speaker is Jonathan Smales, ex MD of Greenpeace and Founder & CEO of Human Nature.
