About this event
Urgent action to create sustainable city regions is essential to support sustainable, zero-carbon living and to tackle the climate and ecological emergency. Using inspirational case studies from leading city regions from around the world, this interactive session will enable policy makers, community groups and development professionals to learn from City leaders who have helped to create exemplar built-environment projects, explaining:
- How city and region-wide initiatives can be used to create clean energy, and to help people use resources sustainably
- How barriers to creating a zero-carbon built environment, in development and operation, can be overcome,
- How community engagement can be enhanced to create sustainable cities and regions that work for everyone,
- How regional government, communities, and the built environment sector can work together to unlock sustainable living at scale,
- How to deliver a zero-carbon region in practice.
Date: Thursday 4th November
Registration fees: Free to attend, registration essential
What is the Built Environment Virtual Pavilion for COP26?
The Built Environment Virtual Pavilion for COP26 is a coalition of 100+ organisations from across the built environment sector, who are working together to give the sector a voice at COP26, the UNFCCC’s critical climate conference, in November this year. The Virtual Pavilion will have two main elements – the first is a virtual exhibition of amazing and diverse projects from around the world, and the second is a programme of talks and events tackling key topics and challenges. Both are designed to engage, educate and inspire.
