The built environment is responsible for a large share of waste production. : it is one of the world’s most polluting industries when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions and intensive resource use, and also affects a declining biodiversity that results from this. Agenda HERE.
|This webinar will address the question of how social and affordable housing providers can be at the forefront of supporting urban biodiversity by exploring the following discussion points: How can in-situ physical and social interventions like green roofs, community gardens, balcony gardens increase biodiversity and how can social and affordable housing providers implement them effectively and cost-efficiently? How can circular construction methods and the use of bio-based materials boost biodiversity in housing and help affordable housing providers to meet their climate and building targets? How can we support a mindset shift in the industry towards seeing supporting nature and the environment (and increasing biodiversity) as a benefit/opportunity, rather than a burden?|
