The climate crisis, extreme weather and biodiversity loss pose threats to all people in all places across our world – today, now. How can we create resilient buildings and cities that protect people, nature and our planet? How can we reimagine human-made places, and the socio-economic systems that underpin them, to be part of a sustainable natural world?

In the monthly Sustainable Places online event series, we're hosting conversations to ignite new ideas and explore solutions to construct a sustainable world for everyone. 

Each month we'll explore the latest ideas and research from The Bartlett's leading thinkers in the built environment field. We'll explore all aspects of the climate crisis and how it intersects with the built environment: from sustainability and green design to climate-adapted cities and housing.
