This cross-institute panel event will see experts from the built environment, chaired by Professor Carl Chinn MBE, examine key themes including regional and socio-economic inequality, inclusive design and development, ongoing building and planning reform and climate resilience and adaptation.

CIOB, ICE, LI, RIBA, RICS and RTPI represent a combined membership of over 360,000 skilled professionals. We develop, maintain and export professional services and standards, as well as accredit university courses across the globe. Together, our members make a vital contribution to the global success of the UK construction industry – a sector worth over £100 billion to the UK economy.

The built environment plays a huge role in our everyday lives and recent events such as covid and the cost of living crisis have demonstrated the need for a built environment that is fit for purpose.

The UK is rich in culture and heritage and we need to start adapting our current infrastructure and buildings to fit in with modern society. Built environment experts from the UK’s leading professional bodies will share their vision to help communities maximise the long-term benefits of development.
