About this Event

***Including a conversation with Martina Otto, Head of the Cities Unit at the UN Environment Programme and Head of Secretariat at the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction***

The Commonwealth Association of Architects is pleased to launch a pilot programme of lectures for built environment professionals, the aim of which is to facilitate knowledge exchange between member organisations and member firms, to help promote mutual understanding and greater awareness of issues related to climate change and rapid urbanisation together with the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

While targeted at qualified built environment professionals, it is hoped that this series will be of interest to policymakers, city leaders and students alike.

As the world embarks upon a Decade of Action in which to achieve the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, the Commonwealth Association of Architects has recognised an opportunity to provide mutual support by means of a structured programme of knowledge exchange in the form of a pilot CPD series and, with nearly 50% of the projected increase in the world’s urban population to 2050 forecast to be in the Commonwealth, architects and built environment professionals have a critical role to play in helping to achieve a more sustainable future for all.

This webinar is the seventh in the series and will be delivered by Gary Clark, Regional Lead EMEA, Science & Technology, at HOK London Studio and Chair of the RIBA Sustainable Futures Group. With only 10 years remaining to achieve the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals and avert a climate crisis, it’s vital for built environment professionals around the world to understand the targets we need to meet and the timescales within which they need to be met. In the concluding lecture of the current series, Gary will describe, in practical terms, a set of measurable and manageable outcomes that practitioners can use on a daily basis on projects of all scales. Upon conclusion of the lecture, Gary will be joined by Martina Otto, Head of the Cities Unit at the UN Environment Programme and Head of Secretariat at the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction.

This lecture marks the end of the seven lectures in this series. For more information please head to our website www.commonwealthsustainablecities.org/cpd or contact info@commonwealthsustainablecities.org
