Sarah Toy Consulting

Sustainability  I  Urban Futures  I  Resilience

I am a chartered civil engineer with more than 27 years’ consulting experience in the field of urban development. Drawing on my breadth of experience working for the private, public, academic and not-for-profit sectors I enjoy working independently or with others to develop practical solutions to complex city problems.

 

My professional track record of working in the field of sustainable development and city resilience in the UK and overseas is complemented by personal qualities of integrity, insight and flexibility.  I approach every new challenge with energy and vision and a commitment to work collaboratively with my client to meet his or her needs and aspirations.

Services

I offer strategic and technical advice to city leadersgovernments, change-makers and practitioners based on my extensive experience addressing complex city resilience and sustainable development challenges in the UK and around the world.

Using my excellent relationship-building skills and my breadth of technical experience I can work with you at any stage of the project cycle – from inception to evaluation – to   

co-create the strategy, partnership, programme, tool, training or event to deliver the impact you seek to achieve.

Using qualitative, quantitative and action-research techniques I can work independently or in a team to generate evidence-based insights to inform programme design, advocacy or investment priorities.  My particular area of interest is exploring the inter-dependencies between sustainable transport, behaviour change, built environment, health and wellbeing and  future city resilience.
