Sustainable building: it's time to join the debate

Taking a closer look at building practices, Castle Debate's event is a must for anyone interested in sustainable construction

What is the impact of current building practice? Right now, 50 percent of UK carbon emissions come from the construction and running of houses, offices and tower blocks. All of these buildings are dependent on vital resources with the construction industry producing three times the waste generated by domestic households during their lifetime.

This March, Castle Debates invites you to join leading scientific speakers including Jon Lovell, Head of Sustainability at Drivers Jonas Deloitte, Professor Bob Lee, a law specialist at Cardiff University, Andrew Stunell MP (Liberal Democrat) to debate on the future of sustainable building methods.

Cost: Free

Date: 29th March, 2011

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
