City Camp BirminghamBirmingham is an archetype of the future that UK cities are facing. Its levels of economic disadvantage, material deprivation and health inequality are clear indicators of this impending reality. These challenges provide the opportunity and necessity for disruptive innovation, and with one of the youngest and most diverse populations in Europe, Birmingham is well placed to completely reimagine itself and forge revolutionary new solutions.
