This year's Nathaniel Lichfield Lecture is being given by Professor Peter Head CBE FREng FRSA. In 2015 the Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by 193 UN member states; including the UK. They all agreed to implement these 17 goals with a target set to achieve the outcomes by 2030. However, the UK National Planning Policy Framework, introduced in 2012, claims we are not set up with the right tools to succeed in reaching this goal. In his lecture, Peter will disucss how he has developed the neccessary tools needed to implament sustainable development in order to be at the standard required to meet these goals. He will describe what he has learnt along his journy of achieving sustainable development and how he hopes to make his tools free for us by 2030.
