Ecobuild 2011 conference overview




The Ecobuild conference focuses on emerging issues, new thinking, challenging ideas, and the new policy priorities of the coalition government responding to the need for budget cuts.

For 2011, there is much to assess and debate – the progress made in putting sustainability at the core of construction and the built environment; the future direction the sector needs to take; how a new government with new priorities will affect the direction and speed of change; and how sustainability will fare in an age of austerity.

The Ecobuild conference in 2011 comprises three streams and examines the key issues surrounding sustainability, construction and the built environment, from big picture debates, such as international political co-operation, global economic models, behaviour and psychology of climate change, and the role of science, through to more domestic challenges such as the how the UK construction sector needs to change, how to refurbish the existing stock, decarbonising electricity generation, the impact of localism and the big society on planning (and in particular the housing sector).


A new conference stream for 2011 will look at sustainability from the perspective of architecture and design, and debate topics such as the role of architects in a resource stressed world, how designers can help change behaviour, what a sustainable community looks like, how ecologically successful cities can be created, and how sustainability and art can be combined.
