'Designing a green and resilient built environment: What do we need to do now and in the future?'

Wednesday 10th November 2021, 9am-10am

Improving how we design our built environment will be crucial if we want to realise more green and resilient places to live. The issue is multifaceted and covers low carbon design principles, the value we place on natural capital, the codes, standards and regulations that guide decisions on design and the role of alternatives such as low build or no build design solutions.

This event will explore how design needs to change to drive action towards achieving a resilient and net-zero built environment that enhances nature, both now and in the future. This facilitated discussion with an audience Q&A will leave policy and decision-maker attendees with clarity on the actions they can support to accelerate change.

This event has been organised by Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE), Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT), Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT), Environmental Industries Commission (EIC), Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), National Infrastructure Commission (NIC), National Infrastructure Commission Young Professional's Panel (NIC YPP), Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI).
