Our urban environments are constantly changing. The pace of this change is accelerating trough green, digital, and societal transition. The public policies need to adapt more promptly and continually evolve to meet the new challenges of urbanisation and triple transition: social, digital and green. Moreover, there is a growing pressure on the policy makers to change gears from reactive to proactive policy making to ensure relevance of policies in a rapidly changing world. This is where we can help. 

Dr Rosenfeld created a suite of research, policy and foresight services support clients in assessing and evolving their current policies at local, national and international levels and designing of the new ones through cutting edge scientific research that is tailored to clients’ needs and objectives. She is committed to supporting clients in exploring pathways to creating inclusive, just and sustainable urban futures that leave no one behind.
