Running A Sustainable Building (Webinar)
Tuesday, 17 June 2014 from 10:30 to 12:30 (BST)
What’s a webinar?!
It’s an online workshop that you can take part in from the comfort of your office or home! You’ll be able to see the presentation, interact with the workshop host, and join a Q&A discussion with other participants with very little technical fuss or know-how required. Sounds complication? Well, it's not. All you need is a computer with speakers or headphones and, if you have one, a microphone to ask questions (you can also ask questions by typing). We’ll give you more information when you sign up…
Running A Sustainable Building
Environmental sustainability makes a great deal of business sense, especially in the case of managing a creative space – whether it be offices, studios or performance spaces. Carbon savings often go hand in hand with cash savings, and environmental initiatives can provide opportunities for building users to participate in the process of creating a greener, healthier environment for everyone.
The two-hour experience will cover:
- An understanding of the environmental impacts associated with running a cultural building;
- Strategies for reducing energy, water and waste;
- Inspiring case studies of best practice;
- Tools and resources to support action, including how to measure and monitor your environmental impacts and reductions;
- Opportunities for ongoing support to develop and implement green ideas in your work.
The webinar will be facilitated by consultants from Julie's Bicycle.
Julie’s Bicycle is an environmental charity working with over 1,000 creative businesses, both UK-based and international, to go green using the latest tools and resources to support action and sustainable business growth.
