Urbano hosts regular speaker networking breakfasts to investigate topics of interest to companies within our various communities. This event should especially appeal to those companies within our Urbano Build and Tech communities.

For our July 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. With over 30 years in sustainable development, Jonathan is a visionary leader in sustainable design and urbanism. Jonathan has advised cities, regeneration agencies, government agencies and blue chip private clients, helping shape schemes for over 100,000 homes now in the pipeline for delivery. He worked on both the London 2012 Olympic Park and its Legacy, and was a member of the Design Advisory Board for the Mayor of London.

Jonathan will share with us how Human Nature is leading the way in sustainable housing and place development, with Urbano members sharing how they are working with the core team as part of Human Nature's supply chain.

This event is kindly hosted by Urbano Members SAGAL GROUP at their Clerkenwell showrooms all attendees will enjoy pastries, yoghurts, fruit, tea and coffee.

As usual, this event will be facillitated by Urbano's Connector-In-Chief Mark Herring and there will be plenty of time to meet and connect with the speakers and other attendees.
