How can engineering and construction transform to respond to the climate emergency?

About this Event

UCL IEDE would like to warmly invite you to attend a series of online talks and a panel discussion to celebrate a rich 55-year history in the field of Environmental Design and Engineering (EDE) at The Bartlett.

The climate emergency and potential responses from the construction industry during and post the COVID-19 pandemic is a key theme of the events that will be explored through presentations and discussions with IEDE staff and guest speakers from the industry.

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday there will be an hour-long lunchtime webinar featuring two 20 minute presentations followed by a 20 minute Q&A. A panel discussion will take place on Friday with all the guest speakers from the week.
