Using innovation to support climate resilience.
When: March 9, 2022
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Tickets: Available now
Our climate is changing and the impacts on our buildings, infrastructure and way of life are set to increase.
It is not enough to mitigate against future climate change, we also need to adapt to the inevitable impacts we are locked into.
Solutions to facilitate climate resilience within the built environment already exist, but they aren’t always common knowledge or well understood. And we don’t have time to individually search for them or generate new ideas from scratch.
To help address this, on 19th January 2022, UKGBC launched two climate resilience challenges, searching for the best solutions to them in need of greater profiling and adoption:
Challenge statement one: How can communities and local authorities implement, maintain, and assess the impact of Nature-Based Solutions to enhance climate resilience?
Challenge statement two: How can existing buildings be made more resilient to climate change, with as little disruption to their occupants as possible, by 2030?
Solution providers whose solutions address the challenges best will be invited to pitch at this showcase event on 9th March 2022, to an expert Judging Panel of UKGBC Members and a live virtual audience who are looking for solutions to these challenges now.
UKGBC judging panel:
Kulbir Bhatti, Sustainability Manager, Great Portland Estates.
Juliet Staples, Senior Project Manager URBAN GreenUP, Liverpool City Council.
Gillian Dick, Manager Spatial Planning – Research & Development, Glasgow City Council.
Robert Winch, ESG Consultant, Hoare Lea.

This showcase is being held as part of UKGBC’s Innovation & Solutions programme.
