  • Next in series of proceedings of this conference
  • State of the art papers by leading experts
  • Points the way for future research

The 10th Urban Environment Symposium (10UES) was held on 9–11 June 2010 in Gothenburg, Sweden. UES aims at providing a forum on the science and practices required to support pathways to a positive and sustainable future in the urban environment. The UES series is run by Chalmers University of Technology within the Alliance for Global Sustainability (The AGS).

 

Papers by leading experts are presented in sections on  Sustainable Urban Develoment and Urban Planning; Air Quality and Human Health; Urban Waters; and Urban Soil Contamination and Treatment.
