Event Description

How on Earth? – an Earth Day special event - will bring a virtual panel of industry leaders and academics from the built environment together with policy shapers, economists, behaviouralists, and decision makers to discuss how we – as a sector - might organise ourselves to manage the most ambitious project since man decided to set foot on the moon.

We know the race to net zero will require collaboration, innovation and clear, decisive leadership such as we have never seen. But how do we, as a sector, bring people along on the journey, from the highest decision makers in the land, to the new army of green engineers, to the humble house dweller? How do we make sure the transition is just, and heals rather than deepens social inequalities?

Then there’s the nuts and bolts - the retrofitting of millions of homes, decommissioning the gas grid, manufacturing and installing hundreds of thousands of heat pumps. The engineering challenge alone is a project management task of monumental proportions.
