5. BIM and Climate Change
This session considers the pressing need for change in our sector to address the Climate and Biodiversity Emergency. If we’re to design and manage carbon neutral (or even, positive) projects, we will need new tools to enable this in practice. Understand the possibilities for mitigation, adaptation, resilience and design for change, appreciate the opportunities that digital practice can afford and recognise why a move towards long-term, holistic thinking around landscape projects is critical – including the hugely significant management phase.Attendees will:
