About this Event

EVENT NOW SOLD OUT - If you would like added to the waiting list please email gemma.sinclair@rias.org.uk

We all want a built environment in Scotland that is fit for purpose and fit for the future. There are many challenges facing place making now and more on the horizon, including a climate emergency, resource scarcity, and low levels of health and wellbeing. These challenges can be met or prepared for, by making the places we live in, work in and play in, and the associated businesses and their supply chains, more circular, resilient and future proof.

This event, delivered in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland, Resources Futures and the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland, will bring together architects, planning consultants and public sector planners to consider the current issues and explore a range of solutions. Join us to hear from our speakers and be part of the discussion on how we can plan and design a future built environment fit for a low carbon, resource efficient population.

The event will also provide the opportunity to find out more about the unique free service from Zero Waste Scotland, designed to support those interested in realising the opportunities associated with the circular economy in planning, design and construction.

Your organisers:

Zero Waste Scotland is The Scottish Governments representative body to deliver a Circular Economy change in Scotland. A Circular Economy approach is much more than a move to towards more recycling, it’s an approach that cuts across all sectors in Scotland that values all the resources we use and looks at value from a whole life cost perspective.

Zero Waste Scotland is funded by the Scottish Government and the European Regional Development Fund to deliver the Resource Efficient Scotland Programme. The Resource Efficient Scotland Construction SME Advice and Support Service offers free advice and technical support to Scottish businesses, helping them embed circular economy principles into the design and construction of our built environment. The Service aims to contribute significantly to the Scottish Government’s strategic economic objectives, climate change, energy efficiency and zero waste targets.

RIAS (Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland) was founded in 1916 as the professional body for all chartered architects in Scotland and is the foremost Institute in the country dealing with architecture and the built environment.

The RIAS has charitable status and offers a wide range of services and products for architects, students of architecture, construction industry professionals and all those with an interest in the built environment and the design process.

Resource Futures are aiming to minimise the impact of consumption and production on the environment.

They focus on high quality collection and expert analysis and interpretation of data to guide customers in the efficient use of material resources; and on the delivery of innovative behaviour change programmes. This includes how to both minimise the impact of production and consumption through reduction, re-use and recycling; and engage people in communities, schools and at work in adopting more sustainable practices.

Resource Futures work in partnership with a range of clients from local authorities and government bodies to small businesses and multi-national companies, as well as third sector organisations and community groups.
