Twilight Talk: Building as if the Planet Matters - the Living Building Challenge - Online
The Green Register's early evening talks supported by Ecomerchant: together promoting ethical, healthy sustainable building materials
The Green Register has proudly launched a new series of events. On the second Monday of each month, we’ll be running Twilight Talks - a relaxed and informal string of events on sustainable building matters to complement our regular training topics.
Each one-hour event will be FREE of charge and feature short talks from one or more speakers. With Q&A and discussion sessions throughout, everyone is invited to be part of the conversation. We’ll be holding Twilight talks at 5-6pm, in the sweet spot between work and dinner – so join us to nourish the mind before replenishing the body!
Building as if the Planet Matters - the Living Building Challenge
This session will give an overview of the enriching process for green projects through the Living Building Challenge.
The definition of 'sustainable' in the construction sector has constantly evolved since the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992, and finding a way for human activities to work in balance with the eco-system is a massive challenge.
Living Building Challenge is a 'deep green' project-based process/tool that guides teams to go much further than just minimising impact. It also has tabulated cross-walk provisions with the Well Standard for dual certification.
Join speaker Julia Bennett of The Green Register / Julia Bennett Architect to find out more about the Living Building Challenge.
- 5 - 5.45pm: Presentations
- 5.45 - 6.00pm: Q&A, Discussion, Networking
