18jan11:0012:30Virtual EventWebinar Biodiversity and BuildingsHow can the Affordable Housing Sector support urban Biodiversity ?

Event Details

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?
