There are plenty of decent business cases for setting science-based targets and having them officially approved by the Science-Based Targets Intiative (SBTi), argues Ben Hopkins, associate at architectural practice Bennett's Associates.

Rachel Hermer describes Lifting Limits, a Camden-based social enterprise, born out of frustration with the slow pace of change in gender equality and the paucity of initiatives that tackle the problem at its roots. 'Our vision is to address the problem of gender stereotypes before it has time to take hold, for gender equality to be mainstream in schools so that children grow up without these limits.'

Holy Trinity in Sunderland is collapsing. It is one of just two Grade I early Georgian churches surviving in the northeast of England. It has been on the Heritage at Risk register for several years and has been nominated as one of the ‘7 Most Endangered’ buildings in Europe. This church marks an important development in the history of Sunderland, which by the 1700s, was a vibrant and prosperous portal town. In particular, it was notable for its sea coal trade with France and the Netherlands.
