The Sustainable Built Environments conference was initially meant to address climate change, biodiversity, food security and disaster management. Due to COVID-19, however, the conference has been revised to also include how disasters such as pandemics will impact on the social and built environment.

During the Introductory Seminar on Day One, experts will provide short, in-depth explanations of the causes  of the climate emergency and the role of design and construction in mitigating and adapting to the impact of climate change and concomitant disasters.

There will also be two days of conference presentations aimed at providing practical, down-to-earth viewpoints and approaches to equip attendees with better ways of working in the design and construction field.

Each event – regenerative design and hand-building training, the seminar on new approaches to architecture and the conference itself - will consider the following two questions:

1. In view of the climate and biodiversity emergency/crisis, what can we expect to happen?

2. How can and should we deal with what may happen?

These two questions will be addressed through three lenses – the classic triumvirate of people, planet, profit - re-interpreted through a more holistic lens, and linked to the regenerative design mantra of “earth care, people care, fair share”.

Description based directly on original event announcement.
