Sustainable Urban Infrastructure: Green Buildings and Liveable Cities - Live Webinar
Wednesday 23 August at 3PM GMT+1
As the world continues to focus on sustainability, our definition of environmental sustainability is moving beyond flora and fauna to include the humans in the ecosystem as well, and there is no better front line than the buildings where we spend most of our time. As environmental, economic and social challenges are now evident, even in high-income nations, transitioning to a sustainable operational model is a priority at the Mayors' desks. As cities are sources of both environmental problems and opportunities, many are already taking strong actions to meet the sustainability challenge. This webinar, held ahead of the 8th annual Sustainable Innovation Forum on 13-14 November 2017 that takes place alongside COP23 in Bonn, gathers influential representatives of the sustainable cities industry to share best practice around how to achieve good quality of life to current residents that doesn't reduce the opportunities for future residents to enjoy too.
Join us and shape the debate around:
*What is the role and contribution of the government to move this industry forward?
*How can public, private and third sector work together to achieve a seamless transition to green buildings and the construction industry?
*How can we design, construct and operate buildings in a manner that reduces or eliminates negative impacts on our climate and natural environment, while preserving precious natural resources and improve our quality of life?
*When building space in metropolitan centres is extremely limited, how do we refurbish and adapt existing buildings, neighbourhoods and infrastructure to meet the evolving needs of urban communities?
*Leadership and social change: How to achieve a behavioural shift by society to change consumption patterns?
