About this event

  • Date and time Thu 20 Oct 2022 from 10:45am to 3:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Retired Fellows Society

Join this event aiming to illustrate the pathway to liveable and sustainable architecture to face the modern world challenges of climate change and pollution, growing population and health risks. Enjoy this stimulating talk in the prestigious setting of the Royal Society of Medicine.

The challenges of climate change and improving health and well-being in a highly populated and changing world are formidable. Architecture, via its buildings and construction, makes a significant contribution to global emissions and climate change by using high volumes of materials, consuming vast amounts of water, energy, waste generation and pollution. The built environment also impacts our health and well-being and is another challenge we face as infection risks increase.

We can learn many lessons from history and nature to make architecture more adaptable to meeting these challenges, giving an optimistic and hopeful picture for the times ahead.
