Climate change and the environment
#TheFutureIsYours Leading the way for a more sustainable future
ACE Conference 'Climate Change & Built Heritage'
n anticipation of COP26 that will take place in November in Glasgow, the Architects’ Council of Europe is organising a public conference, on Thursday 28 October in Brussels to discuss the solutions that a high-quality architecture can offer to mitigate climate change and help our society to adapt its effects.
It will focus on the mindset and attitude towards the built environment that is required to initiate quality planning processes – a prerequisite for the design of low-carbon and climate resilient buildings, public spaces and cities. The event will be designed as an opportunity to discuss ongoing EU policy initiatives (EU Climate Law, Renovation Wave strategy, New European Bauhaus), as well as city and landscape planning, mobility, circular economy, re-use of the heritage – through some architectonically excellent projects.
The conference will be opened by Anna HERINGER, Winner of the 2021 New European Bauhaus Awards in the category “Solutions for the co-evolution of built environment and nature” followed in the afternoon by a keynote speech by Martin RAUCH, Winner of the 2021 New European Bauhaus Awards in the category “Techniques, materials and processes for construction and design.
