This event will consider what climate change impacts will mean for the planning and development process. It will look at how design will need to address issues around an aging population, and what climate change adaptation looks like for developers and developments. Speakers will consider what a net zero pathway could look like and how the circular economy will play a part in helping meet net zero carbon targets.
