Brighton Permaculture Trust to Host Talks on Green Architecture Day 2018
Green Architecture Day is an annual event Brighton Permaculture has run in partnership with Low Carbon Trust since 2002. Since then, the event has attracted over 2,000 participants to hear inspiring talks about how we can live and work in greener buildings. It has featured talks from speakers as varied as Ben Law, Christopher Day, Pooran Desai and Satish Kumar.
Brighton Permaculture Trust believe that we need to give equal weight to sustainability in the built environment and regenerating our landscapes.
Organisers are asking leading experts to think about some big issues, like if there is any use in our current climate of being a tiny beacon of sustainability or should we be focusing on larger developments. How this can be possible and where the architectural and design community is heading? How does this translate to a city like Brighton and Hove and what is being done here at home?
The event is sure to be an inspiring day of talks, with stalls and stands, including Meet the expert. Including a complimentary light lunch
There will also be a facilitated plenary panel at the end of the day where we explore participants questions. If public speaking does not come naturally you can still ask questions by ballot.
This event is open to anyone aged 16 or over and will be of interest to anyone interested in sustainability and buildings. The event has benefited students, home renovators, self builders, landlords, tenants, developers, builders, architects, engineers, planners and academics.
Green Architecture Day 2018 will be a conference style day with a variety of expert speakers. Something for everyone interested in sustainable development
Each year Brighton Permaculture Trust tailor the day with a theme; to respond to current advances and future changes – the theme of the 2018 Green Architecture Day will be “Sustainability at Scale – Size Matters” with conversations leading back to questions of how the sustainable architecture agenda can be expanded, and how architects, engineers, and construction workers can tackle the challenges facing green projects when implemented in a big scale.
